Acclimatization for Chimborazo

This is the most important thing to take in mind before considering climbing the summit of Ecuador´s highest peak, According to Wikipedia, Acclimatization or acclimatisation (also called acclimation or acclimatation) is the process in which an individual organism adjusts to a change in its environment (such as a change in altitude, temperature, humidity, photoperiod, or pH), allowing it to maintain performance across a range of environmental conditions.

This basic 4-day package allows climbers to have an adjustment to altitude, in our eco-lodge located at 4000 m, surrounded by self-guided trails, that go all the way up to 5000 m.

Spending a day prior to the climb at this elevation will improve the odds to reach the Summit of Chimborazo gret if you are short of time and gives you more time to spend and get to know the National Park and its surroundings.

At this elevation, our clients have time to train above 4000 m, and come back to a nice hot dinner, have a nice rest and recover, for the night of the climb.

Climb Chimborazo with acclimatization and enhance your chances to reach the summit of Ecuador´s highest peak and the closest point from earth to the sun.
