Why take this tour?

Are you ready for the mother of all PEAKS IN ECUADOR? The ultimate challenge – climb the highest mountain in Ecuador! For many years the Chimborazo (6310m) was thought to be the highest mountain in the world. Due to the height, proper acclimatization is essential- so you must have been in the sierra for at least a week and climbed above 5000 meters (preferably Cotopaxi) in that time. Snow up to the knees is not uncommon and a high level of fitness is required as the summit climb will certainly push you to your physical limits. Prepare for trekking and glacier climbing, not for the faint of heart.
