Chimborazo (6,268 m) is a majestic peak in the heart of Ecuador. Also it’s one of its most iconic mountains. But, to reach its top, you’ll need to prepare and get acclimatized. So join me, on this mountaineering adventure to the summit of Chimborazo, ascending Cayambe (5790 m) and Iliniza (5126 m) first.

This program is exclusive for those with an excellent fitness level, previous experience and the courage to attempt these three summits in 6 days. My main objective will be to keep you safe while making sure you have a fantastic time.

We’ll begin by ascending the Iliniza Norte, where we’ll get some of the most breathtaking views of the Andes. Thereupon we’ll head towards Cayambe, this dormant volcano will certainly inject us with the right dosage of adrenaline to continue our expedition. Reaching its summit will require effort, as we’ll pass through glacier, snow, ice and rocky terrains. But once we stand at the summit we’ll get the most impressive sceneries as the perfect reward.

Then, we’ll prepare for our last and final objective, the top of Chimborazo. So, we’ll spend the day in the town of Baños de Agua Santa. Thus, we’ll get to take short hikes and engage in other outdoor activities to get acclimatized. Standing at the top of Chimborazo will take us around 8 to 9 hours. But, breathing the pure air at its summit, will make it all worth it.

If you want to join this mountaineering trip, just request to book this trip. It would be my pleasure to be your guide on this adventure in Ecuador.
