As its name suggests, this store is designed to prepare you for anything you might wish to do while staying around the Andes mountain range. What Andes 6000 lacks in size, it more than makes up for in the quality of its products, and the shop actually manages to stock more than you'd expect - in quite a modest space.
Andes 6000 will ensure that you are more than prepared for your adventure in the great outdoors. They stock a wide range of clothing and equipment, including thermal shirts and fleece jackets; trekking boots and trail running shoes; a range of carry equipment including hiking and mountaineering bags; and climbing gear such as strings, hammers and axes. You'll also find various camping equipment, and outdoor accessories such as torches, lenses, and canes.
As well as stocking these items, Andes 6000 employs friendly and knowledgeable staff that will be able to advise you on which items are best for your particular outing, and about walking and mountaineering in the Ecuadorian Andes in general. The store is even a good place to stop by if you just want some helpful advice, and are not thinking of purchasing anything - you might find there's a life-saver product you didn't know existed!
Be aware that due to the store's modest size, it may not have every product or variation in stock when you arrive. Take a look at the Andes 6000 website for a full list of the items they sell.
