Highlights

 
     

    In a row of volcanoes that is literally called the avenue of volcanoes in Ecuador, Chimborazo (6,263m) stands tallest. Everything from the height, shape and sheer size of the Chimborazo volcano is impressive. And when you reach the permanently snow covered summit, you will have the chance to look up and feel like you can touch the sun!

    This 2 day trip will begin in the city of Quito. From there we will make our way to the incredible avenue of volcanoes. Once we reach this most ancient of avenues, we will walk through it. During this trek, you will get to marvel at 27 different volcanoes. Every single one of these peaks has its own look and personality. You will also get to appreciate the abundance of vegetation, wildlife and landscape.

    Once we reach the Chimborazo volcano, we will begin the thrilling climb to its summit. After the first day’s climb, we will spend the night at the Hermanos Carrel Refuge (4,800m). The following day, we will wake up early and make our way to the summit. The trek to the top will be challenging. There will be tough terrain, ice and snow, but I will help guide you safely, while also providing you with all of the equipment you will need. Plus, the glory of the view from the summit will make it all worth it.

    Please get in touch with me if you want to venture to the peak of the breathtaking Chimborazo Volcano. It will be a journey you will never forget.

    If you would like to climb another peak on the avenue of volcanoes, I can also guide you to the top of Cayambe on this 6 day ascent.

    About the Guide

     
     

    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.

    Even though we turned around at 5900m due to avalanche danger I really enjoyed the climb and Segundo was a great guide - professional and friendly.

    I am writing in regards to the tour my husband and I took to Chimborazo November 3-4,2018. We had a very great time and were lucky enough to make the hike to the summit. The guide who picked us up from Hotel San Francisco was very nice and on time as expected, his name was Jaun Carlos. Once we arrived for dinner Jaun Carlos introduced us to our guide who we’d be hiking with the next day, his name is Fausto. Both guides were professional and very helpful. Once we all made it to the summit our camera died and we were unable to take any photos. Thankfully Fausto had his phone available and was able to capture several pictures and a couple videos.
