The ultimate summit in Ecuador is Chimborazo with 6268m (20,500ft).

Cayambe Summit

This volcano is the closest point to the Sun, even 1,8km closer than Mt. Everest! This is caused by the Earth`s bulge in the equator. Link to this fact.

To succefully summit this majestic mountain, you have to prepare and acclimatize with a crescent mountain program. Our preparation will include 3 under 5.000m peaks, Cayambe (5.790m / 18,990ft) and Cotopaxi (5.897m / 19,300ft).
