Climbing

 

 

Ecuador is the country dreamed for trekkings, expeditions and ascents.
 
In fact, the mountains are very accessible, roads rise up to 4800 m, the Whymper refuge is located at 5000 meters above sea level (the highest in the world) and all of this allows making several ascents in a very short time.
 
The volcanoes that reach nearly 6000 m. are numerous and they will like both the beginner and the experienced climber.
Elevation has a predominant role and a good acclimatization will be necessary for the success of your program of High Mountain.
 
In Ecuador, along the Andes, impressive volcanoes rise.
 
The Cayambe, crossed by latitude 0, the Sangay, one of the world's most active volcanoes, the snow-capped Antisana, the almost perfect cone of Cotopaxi, the highest active volcano in the world (5897 m.), The majestic massif of Altar and the colossal Chimborazo, culminating at 6310 meters above sea level rise on the high Andean plateaus.
