Climbing Chimborazo

Climbing Chimborazo from High Camp


Chimborazo Volcano is the highest mountain in Ecuador and on the planet measured from the center of the earth and the closest point to the sun. The climb takes 2 days to reach the main summit. We recommend an adequate acclimatization to the altitude so that the ascent is more likely to be successful.


Day 1: Machachi 9,842ft / 3.000m — High Camp 17,388ft / 5.300m
After checking our high altitude equipment we will leave at 10:00 am in our private transportation and in 2 hours we will arrive to the city of Ambato where we will have lunch in a local restaurant. Then we will continue for a little more than 1 hour until we arrive to the parking lot of Chimborazo, here we will organize our backpack and we will walk for at least 3 hours until we arrive to the High Camp (5.300m) once here we will have hot drinks and dinner will be around 17:30 pm, then we will rest until 22:00 pm.

Day 2: High Camp 17,388ft / 5.300m — Chimborazo Summit 20,702ft / 6.310m — Back to Machachi
After serving a light breakfast and packing we will start our ascent at 23:00 pm we will pass through the castle and moraine to reach the glacier where we will admire the beauty of the surroundings and then arrive at dawn to the first summit called Veintimilla 6.260m where we will rest and regain energy to continue for 1 hour more to the true summit “Whimper” 6.310m here we will take many pictures of the spectacular view and volcanoes around us. The descent will be by the same route and will take 3 to 4 hours to the High Camp, then we will pack all our equipment and in 2 hours we will arrive to our transport to return to Machachi.
