Carihuairazo (5020m) is a beautiful peak in the center of Ecuador. It is often called the little neighbour of Chimborazo since they are 10 km apart.
In fact, it’s a good acclimatization peak. During the ascent to Carihuairazo you will practice some snow and glacier walking skills. Besides, the natural environment is simply stunning.
To get there we will depart from either Quito or Riobamba. The program takes in total two days. In the first one we get to the area and acclimatize. And then on the second day we reach the magnificent summit! For more details please check the itinerary below.
Although it can be climbed year found, the best months are January, June, July and December.
