More Info

Chimborazo is located south of Quito, just northwest of Riobamba. It has a wide variety of terrain, from lakes and lagoons to glaciers at its top. The area is well protected and accessible from most Ecuadorian cities, even Guayaquil.

The Incan history has built some interesting hikes, including the Inca Trail and the Altar Trek. These multi-day expeditions allow a full immersion into the Ecuadorian backcountry. For anyone who wants to make the most of their trip to Chimborazo, some of the pre-planned routes and itineraries are the best option.

The easy access and central location to major cities within the country make it a focal point of more ambitious adventures. If you are planning an extended trip through the country, Chimborazo will most likely be the most important stop on the journey.




Good to Know



You can expect the rainy season to last from October to May, with a dry winter season for the remainder of the year. Chimborazo is a high-altitude region, so it can get a bit colder in places, though warm temperatures are the norm.
