After living several adventures and sharing unforgettable moments with the environment, there is no better way to end the day than with a relaxing massage. Hacienda Manteles offers this service in each guest room, in order that the person can stay in the room resting after massage and can get a complete relaxation.
During the rides you can see beautiful scenery of the surroundings, including breathtaking views of Tungurahua, Chimborazo, Carihuairazo, Altar and the Cotopaxi volcanoes.
In the Hacienda we provide helmets and native guide (Spanish speaking).
WALK TO THE WATERFALL OF PAYACUCHO
This hike takes place within 200 hectares of cloud forest that Hacienda Manteles protects, thanks to the visit of our dear guests. This forest is considered a buffer zone for the Llanganates National Park, which is famous for its biodiversity, difficult accessibility and the legend of the treasure of Atahualpa.
The trail is completely natural and people have to cross some streams along the way.
This walk is included in the room rate. People who are not staying with us can also do the walk, in this case it has a separate fee. (2 hours activity).
In Hacienda Manteles you can observe a great variety of birds. The best times for sightings are between 5 to 9 am and 4-6 pm depending on weather conditions and season (see our list of birds).
Request document with the programs we offer.
Our chefs are happy to teach guests how to prepare one or two traditional Ecuadorian dishes.
If you need ingredients from our organic garden for the dish to prepare, guests will have the opportunity to collect these ingredients from our gardens with their own hands.
VISITA AL ORDEÑO
Lo mejor es hacerlo en la mañana, para disfrutar además de los aromas, sonidos y paisajes matutinos de Hacienda Manteles. Aprenderás a ordeñar una vaca siguiendo las técnicas usadas por los campesinos desde tiempos inmemorables y que han sido heredades generación tras generación.
Después de esta actividad sigue experimentando el campo y visita nuestro huerto!
