Mount Chimborazo, Ecuador
(4.6/5 based on 70+ reviews on the web)
Experienced climbers and adventurous sightseers flock to Mount Chimborazo for its sweeping snowcapped vistas. Once considered the highest mountain on earth at 6,268 m (20,564 ft) before being eclipsed by the Himalayas, the peak nonetheless represents the farthest point from the earth's center, thanks to a geological bulge. Ascending to the top is a task for experienced climbers only, and be aware that supplies, correct clothing, and plenty of rest are all essential. Those who don't want to make the strenuous climb can also take a car and then walk up to the second refuge for an excellent vantage point of the surrounding vista. Venturing beyond that point requires you to have a guide. Using our custom trip planner, Quito attractions like Mount Chimborazo can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Is a mountain very enormous and filled with ice on the tip but it would go very well sheltered because it is too cold there will many tourists recommend much :)
