Climbing Illinza Sur peak, Ecuador

Illinza is one of the famous volcanoes in Ecuador. This 2-day ascent is a perfect preparation for the highest volcanoes in the area.



2 Days



Illinza is a double peak volcano in the Volcanoes Avenue, in Ecuador. It has two peaks, the North (5126 m) and the South (5263 m). Here I propose you to summit the South (“Sur” in Spanish) peak during this 2-day trip.

We find this volcano 55 km to the south of Quito.

It is an excellent acclimatization summit in order to prepare for Chimborazo, Cotopaxi or Cayambe. We can take this trip together and then I will guide you in the ascent of one of these other higher volcanoes in Ecuador.

Amazing short but exciting climb to a summit with outstanding views. Perfect acclimatization peak for the bigger Ecuadorian volcanoes, with a cozy hut and a nice approach walk. Fredy was fantastic, thank you so much for this unforgettable experience!
