Highlights

 
     

    Antisana is the 4th highest peak in Ecuador, and my favourite mountain. The ascent in itself is beautiful, and it is the least visited of the country’s high mountains. So we get to enjoy a fantastic feeling of solitude. And from the summit, we can see most of the other famous volcanoes.

    As well as being a important stratovolcano of Ecuador, Antisana is one of the drinking water providers of the country because of its constant cape of thick snow. That makes this mountain unique and ideal for climbers, and training glacier skills. So that, we invite you to live this exciting 2-day adventure around the east side of the Real Range of Ecuador.

    In our first day we will get to Laguna Santa Lucia by car and if weather conditions help we will be taken to the end of the road in order to avoid walking up to there. And here starts the funniest! We keep the way hiking up to a glacier at 4.750 meters in where we will set up our camp and rest for the following challenging day.

    The climb up to Antisana summit will take us about 8 hours. After the first hours we will need to put our ice equipment on in order to fulfill our ascent objective. And when we get to the 5.758-meter summit you will feel very proud of yourself (and so do I) because you did it!

    Antisana can be climbed all year round, although the best months are from December to Febraury.

    You just have to get in touch with me in order to organize your trip to Antisana according to your own wishes and requirements.

    UIAGM/IFMGA-ASEGUIM Mountain Guide from Ecuador.

    I am a mountain guide, but also a passionate traveler, climber in rock and ice, and photographer. I spend my free time and holidays exploring new destinations, discovering new mountains and cultures.

    I have more than 17 years of experience climbing mountains and volcanoes not only in Ecuador, but also in other South American countries such as Colombia, Peru, Bolivia and Argentina, and in the Alps in Austria, Italy, Switzerland and Germany. I also summited KhanTengri peak in the Himalayas, and Mt. McKinley in Alaska. This experiences prepared me to lead expeditions in challenging routes all around the world.

    I studied 6 years of Tourism in the University, and followed ASEGUIM courses to become a mountain guide. I’ve also been evaluated by ENSA, and completed first aid courses in the Ecuadorian Red Cross.

    I like guiding people from all around the world, and help them discover and enjoy the mountains, while reaching their objectives. I speak Spanish, English, German, Italian, and a bit of Russian.

    What People are Saying about Edgar Parra

     

    Edgar was an excellent guide. I have little climbing experience and Edgar was very knowledgeable and instructive. He is a life long climber and he has tons of experience and passion climbing through out the world. He was pleasant and a very nice guy. Unfortunately, the weather was very bad while I was in Ecuador so Edgar came up with a great alternative climb to Cayambe, which was not in good condition due to storms. He knows the mountains like the back of his hand and can relay tons of information, which makes the trip that much more enjoyable. His 4x4 transport and climbing equipment were all top notch. He understood safety and made sure to avoid unnecessary risks. I will climb with Edgar again.

    Edgar is an amazing guide. He is incredibly knowledgeable and encouraging. The combination makes you feel confident in the things that he teaches you and in your ability to reach the summit.

    Edgar Parra is a great guide: thoroughly professional, safety conscious, always on time and with an engaging personality. He came highly recommended and I can only heap additional praise. He guided my son and I up Cotopaxi to a successful summit and made it a trip of a lifetime. In so far as putting my money where my mouth is, I plan to hire him in the future (2020) with my entire family for a trip to Machu Picchu. No better praise than a repeat customer.

    I did not guide with Fredy, I was passed off to another guide (who was IFMGA certified and great), just fyi, if this is something that is important to you. Accommodations are basic but good. I would add only that Chimborazo is a VERY difficult mountain with a ~10% success rate, so you really need to know what you are getting into. Do NOT rush acclimatization. You may consider doing Cotopaxi and then after choosing either Cayambe (same level as Cotopaxi) or Chimborazo, depending on how you feel.
