More Info

The Ecuadorian Andes have been a popular climbing and hiking destination for centuries. Chimborazo was long thought to be the highest mountain on Earth, leading to many early expeditions to its summit. While it may not be the tallest peak when measuring from sea level, it is still recognized as the furthest point away from the center of the Earth.

Ecuador’s incredible biodiversity is an additional perk to hikes and treks on its mountains. The Andes are home to a wide variety of endemic species, and the country does a great job of ensuring these plants and animals have a safe place to thrive.

Many of the high-altitude points of interest remain relatively undeveloped, so you can enjoy some great remote hikes across the Andes.

How to Get There

Quito is smack dab in the middle of the fun, so flying straight to the capital is the best way to reach the Ecuadorian Andes. It connects directly to most major South American cities, including Bogota and Lima, and connects domestically to the airport in Guayaquil. Buses are also an option within the country, though their efficacy can at times come into question.
