The Chimborazo Acclimatization package was made for people with limited time in Ecuador that want to reach the summit of Chimborazo. Its aimed at helping you acclimatize and adapt to high-altitude so you have a greater chance of reaching Ecuador’s highest summits such as Mount Chimborazo.
This Mountain Climbing Tour has 2 steps:
- Climb Carihuairazo: This is a 2-day climb of Carihuairazo, the twin mountain next to Chimborazo, is a great training ground for Chimborazo or for beginners and inexperienced climbers.
- Climb Chimborazo: This is the largest mountain in Ecuador and its 6’310 meters (20,565 ft) equatorial summit is the closest point to the sun on earth.
We recommend for climbers to get well acclimatized prior to the start of the expedition. Chimborazo can be a difficult trek, though without much technical experience needed. To ensure your chance and experience of reaching the peak of Chimborazo, we recommend some time for your body to adapt to the altitude, so you can be in your best condition.
Mountain Refuge: Chimborazo climb starts from Carrel refuge, unfortunately, Whymper refuge is not available due to a lease given to a private company which maintains it closed to the public for sleeping.
Ask for the high altitude camp as an alternative.
