Ecuador is home to many renown peaks. It is the case for example of Illiniza Sur, Altar-Obispo and Chimborazo. They are the protagonists of this adventure.

This is a very technical expedition for expert climbers. In fact, it is more technical than what people generally expect. The trip lasts 8 days. I particularly like it for advanced climbers that want to discover some of the most renowned and remote volcanoes from Ecuador.

Please not that we will need to hire a car to move from one spot to another.

Please contact me if you are interested in this program, or want to do some mountaineering in Ecuador’s volcanoes!

If you prefer, I also offer shorter trips to climb these peaks. Have a look at the Illinza Sur and Chimborazo programs.


Day 1 to 2

Illiniza Sur

Illiniza sur is a great option to start the trip and get acclimatized.

Day 3 to 6

El Altar

It is located in the Sangay National Park, 20 km from Riobamba. The northern summit is called Canon, Easter summit Tabernacle and Southern Obispo. It is this last one that I propose to climb.

Day 7 to 8


Chimborazo is the highest volcano in Ecuador.
