Train for Everest

Train for EverestEcuador is a country blessed with Andean snow peaks, amazon rainforest, and tropical beaches.

The mountain ranges of Ecuador and its snow peaks have easy access, thus one can complete a chain of several summits in less than 15 days.

We have had several clients that have come to Ecuador, with a goal, training for the Himalayas, specifically for Everest, including celebrity, Grammy-nominated musician Mike Posner, in 2020 and 2021, who reached the summit of Everest in march 2021.

Our program allows you to train and reach the 4 highest summits of Ecuador with the following order

Pichincha mid-mountain trek to the summit helps us with acclimatization and adaptation to the altitude

Ilinizas summit 5120 m (17000 feet) – Ilinizas Norte is the less technical mountain of our twin peaks Ilinizas, we´ll invest one day on this mountain in order to gain adaptation to the altitude.

Cayambe Summit 5790 (19500 feet) – What makes Mount Cayambe special is that its the third highest mountain in Ecuador but the only mountain on Earth that is located on the Equator line and covered in snow.

Antisana Summit and semi-technical climb 5704 m (19000 feet)

Cotopaxi Summit 5897 m (20000 feet) – This is the second-highest mountain in Ecuador and its 5,897m (19,347ft) summit makes it one of the largest active volcanoes in the world.

Chimborazo 6280 m (21000 feet) Maximum Summit – Chimborazo 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.

More and more climbers are choosing this new option, which starts at 5300 m, again the climb takes 2 days, but starting at this elevation cuts the attack time by almost half, making it even possible to climb the mountain in the afternoon, here is a short video of a rare Summit done by our clients at Sunset 6 pm.
