The volcano is located in the Chimborazo fauna production reserve. It is considered the highest mountain in Ecuador and the closest to the sun, with dreamlike landscapes that invite us to dream higher just by looking at each other.
Our tour begins in Quito where we will venture to explore the trails of the imposing Chimborazo with our professional guide. The altitude of its summit is 6310 meters above sea level, a nice challenge for lovers of mountaineering, however on our tour we can explore and enjoy up to 5100 meters above sea level.
There is a mystical lagoon called Cóndor Cocha next to the summit of the volcano. We cannot forget that here we will find paramo flora and fauna of the area such as the vicuña, a kind of camelid. After this, we will descend to the parking lot to finish our adventure around this beautiful and imposing volcano.
After the adventure, the adrenaline and a lot of joy we will end our tour in Quito

Great Trip to See Chimborazo

This is a great way to see Mt. Chimborazo from Quito. It comes with breakfast before we get to the mountain and lunch after. The hike to the refuge is challenging, but well worth it. The views are are spectacular. Our tour guide was terrific.
To short…

best way to go to the Chimborazo

I had a very good hike with them. They took you from Baños to Chimborazo in a van, and from the first refuge you walk 50 minutes to get to the Condor Cocha Lagoon. The guide is very promptly and kind, he answered every question I had. The downhill was so good. The guide is near you in the van just in case. Highly recommended.
Conocer el Chimborazo es imperdible.

Es "obligatorio" visitar el Chimborazo: por su majestuosidad, por sus paisajes, por su altitud... Es una de esas experiencias de las que se puede leer mucho, pero nada se compara a vivirlo en persona.

Ahora bien, me resultó decepcionante el supuesto "malentendido" suscitado en el sentido de que, pese a que tanto en la publicidad en el respectivo sitio electrónico como en el comprobante de mi reservación, se indicó de forma expresa que el tour incluía un descenso en bicicleta, durante aquel se me indicó que eso no se me podría brindar porque se trata de un servicio complementario. De hecho, ante la evidencia que le exhibí al guía, este solo atinó a decirme que lo lamentaba, pero no podía hacer nada al respecto.

Sin embargo, la amabilidad del guía Esteban y del conductor Santiago fue excepcional.
Awesome experience at a unique mind blowing location
Cornelia_V, 15-05-2022
This was a magical day @ a real mind blowing volcano and landscape. Both my guide Daniel & driver Santiago went out of their way to get the most out of this experience. If I had to rate them, it would have been 5 stars plus, ver well done!!! Nevertheless I rate the booking 3 stars, because the description says biking downhill. There is no such thing included and they offer no restitution for not living up to that part of the trip. Second point is that communication before the trip started, was mediocre. No response to email and dietary restrictions were not noted
