Illiniza Sur, Altar-Obispo and Chimborazo climbing trip

Illiniza Sur, Altar-Obispo and Chimborazo climbing trip | undefined

Join a local certified mountain guide to some of the most famous peaks in Ecuador for a week: Illiniza Sur, Altar-Obispo and Chimborazo.


8 Days

Jan, Dec


Ecuador is home to many renowned 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 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.

Price includes

- Guiding fee

- Transport during the trip


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

Chimborazo is the highest volcano in Ecuador.

What people are saying about Reynaldo



Had an amazing time with my guide Ramiro. He selected the perfect mix of mountains in order to properly acclimatize so I could achieve the summit of Cayambe. With his vast experience of more than three decades he was able to teach me a lot of skills and know-how along the way so I’d always feel safe on the mountains. I can only recommend a trip with Ramiro. You’re definitely in good hands and going to make wonderful experiences.
