Description

The magnificent strato-volcano called Corazon is located just in the middle of The Ecuadorian Andes no more than 40 kilometers far for Quito, the capital of Ecuador. What Corazon Volcano has to offer are beautiful green lands and a moderate hike across Paramos with such past landscapes that you won’t believe it.

Because of that, today we are inviting you to this 1 day climb adventure up to the heart of the north face of Ecuadorian Range, more specifically to Corazon Summit at 4.790 meters. Are you going to miss it?

The starting point of this exciting trip will be in El Chaupi Village, a small town famous because of its agricultural industry. We will be taken to Illinizas Ecological Reserve from where we will start the hike up to the volcano.

During our walk we can admire the green fields and the nature around us. Although some hours later the trail starts to get steeper, its landscapes are unbelievably great. The whole climb will take us about 7 hours, so that we always recommend some previous mountaineering experience.

Once in Corazon Summit, the viewpoint will talk by itself. We can enjoy a panoramic sight of the famous Avenue of The Volcanoes and other Ecuadorian peaks of the region. After a deserved lunch we will come back to El Chaupi by car and celebrate with a delicious coffee in Andes Alpes Cafe, we did such a exciting expedition together.

I will be waiting for your contact. I am sure you want to live this climb experience and I am the indicated guide for it. Get in touch with me and plan this trip together.
