Description

Illiniza is a Ecuadorian Volcano located in the southwestern face of Quito. It is considered as one of the best previous acclimatization peaks for higher ascents because of its low climbing difficulty despite of being at 5.200 meters.

Illiniza has two peaks, Illiniza North and Illiniza South, which are a result of a massive eruption that split the mountain 5000 years ago. Today, we are inviting you to this 2-day climbing adventure up to Illiniza North.

Although its surface is suitable for those who has no previous experience in mountaineering, it is necessary to know some climbing techniques in snowy seasons. Because of that, I want to help you to fulfill this challenge.

This amazing trip will start in Virgen Parking Lot where we will get by car. From there, we will walk for about 3 hours up to our hut Nuevos Horizontes in order to rest and get ready for the following summit day.

The second day will consist in the ascent to Illiniza North top across fantastic landscapes full of green lands and rocky paths. Once in the summit, a unforgeable viewpoint will shock yourself. Depending on the weather and sky conditions we will be able to see the most important volcanoes of the Ecuadorian Range.

The end of the trip is in El Chaupi again once we hike down for 3 hours.

If you are interested in this short but intense expedition across one of the most legendary stratro-volcanoes of all Ecuador, you just have to get in touch with me. I am sure you don’t want to miss this experience.
