It is an unforgettable visit, moreover, that fantasy is to know that you visited the highest volcano in the world, measured from the center of the Earth up to the Summit.

Chimborazo was recently considered the closest point to the sun by some scientists. I had the best experience visiting this volcano in the Andes. The day I came here had the opportunity to watch some animals on my path and felt the fresh air. The landscape and view are really amazing. I would recommend to visit this inactive volcano.
One of the most memorable hikes of my life, I can't wait to relive this experience again! Cheers
Been here done that. Drink that special 110 proof alcohol, if you get altitude sickness.
If you're in Riobamba this is a must hike! it's easy to get there. There's a public transport from the main bustop of the city that will take you for a couple of dollars. Amazing view you can run into Vicuñas and other cute animals!
Beautiful,stunning and very well preserved
