Chimborazo, Chimborazo Province

#1 of 8 in Nature in Chimborazo Province
Experienced climbers and adventurous sightseers flock to Chimborazo for its sweeping snowcapped vistas. Once considered the highest mountain on earth at 6,268 m (20,564 ft) before being eclipsed by the Himalayas, the peak nonetheless represents the farthest point from the earth's center, thanks to a geological bulge. Ascending to the top is a task for experienced climbers only, and be aware that supplies, correct clothing, and plenty of rest are all essential. Those who don't want to make the strenuous climb can also take a car and then walk up to the second refuge for an excellent vantage point of the surrounding vista. Venturing beyond that point requires you to have a guide. PutChimborazo into our Chuquipogyo trip itinerary planning app and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
