  • The access by car to the Refugio is already an adventure in itself. Hiking trails to the glacier and the lagoon to the top starting at the Refugio. Who loves that which is right here...

  • Wow. So beautiful and still so rough. After 6 hours of climbing through high winds, heavy rain, snow and fog we had to turn around without summiting. Still a fantastic adventure. Surroundings are just beautiful. The Refugio is one of the best and newest I have seen so far.
  • It's beautiful volcano. The view is amazing
  • Beautiful ice structures on the glacier.
  • Oh mighty mother nature agreed to let us through, after 8 hours of a moderated steep climbing through, with fog and icy wind in the last mile, we conquered the Cayambe Volcano top.
  • Cayambe (5790 mnpm), is the third highest peak of Ecuador and the highest (and the only snowy) point on the equator. Magnificent volcano and an attractive destination for very much! experienced mountain hikers. Start with the shelter Oleas Ruales (4600 mnpm). An average of 6-7 hours to climb to the top of a lot of glacial crevices, some very steep places in the ice. Wonderful view of the Avenue of Volcanoes, and even the Chimborazo is the highest mountain in Ecuador about 200 kilometers.
