Trekking Chimborazo or CotopaxiI am interested in trekking either the Chimborazo or Cotopaxi area solo and am wondering the following:
-Is either area easily done w/o a guide? I want to carry my own supplies w/ my own tent.
-How long would it take to trek around in each area?
Any other information would be greatly appreciated!

1Yes you can trek alone and camp below those 2 volcanoes. There is no 'official' trekking route. For Chimborazo there isa 'traverse' to the North of the mountain, 2 days. For Cotopaxi, it's a national park. There is a circuit of the mountains, up to 4 or 5 days, but shorter treks (to the North) can also be done.
