Day 1: Preparation and Ascent to High Camp.

  • Morning: Your adventure begins with an early departure from Riobamba or Ambato, Ecuador, to reach the Chimborazo Ecological Reserve. The journey to the reserve takes approximately 3-4 hours, depending on the starting point.
  • Mid-morning: Upon arrival at the reserve entrance, complete any necessary registrations or permits before continuing towards the base camp.
  • Late morning: Begin the trek from the reserve entrance to the base camp, situated at around 4,800 meters (15,750 feet) above sea level. The trek typically takes 1.5 to 2 hours and involves hiking through rugged terrain and high-altitude ecosystems.
  • Afternoon: Arrive at the base camp, where you’ll meet your mountain guides and receive a comprehensive briefing on the ascent plan, safety procedures, and equipment. Take time to rest, hydrate, and enjoy a hearty meal prepared by your support team.
  • Evening: As the sun sets, prepare for the ascent to the high camp. Load your gear onto pack animals or carry them yourself as you embark on a challenging hike to reach the high camp, situated at approximately 5,900 meters (19,350 feet). The ascent to the high camp typically takes 3 to 4 hours, depending on weather conditions and individual pace.
  • Night: Arrive at the high camp and settle into your tent accommodations. Your guides will prepare hot drinks and a nourishing dinner to help fuel your climb. Rest and try to get some sleep, as you’ll be waking early for the summit push.

Day 2: Summit Attempt and Descent.

  • Midnight: Wake up to a hot drink and a light breakfast before gearing up for the summit push. Dress in multiple layers to stay warm in the freezing temperatures and high winds encountered at altitude.
  • Pre-dawn: Begin the summit ascent under the cover of darkness, equipped with headlamps to illuminate the way. Follow your experienced guides as you navigate steep slopes, rocky terrain, and potentially icy sections.
  • Sunrise: As you ascend higher, witness the breathtaking spectacle of sunrise over the Andean peaks, casting a golden hue upon the surrounding glaciers and valleys.
  • Mid-morning: Reach the summit of Chimborazo, standing at an awe-inspiring elevation of 6,268 meters (20,564 feet) – the highest point in Ecuador and the closest point on Earth to the sun. Take time to celebrate your achievement and soak in the panoramic views of the Andean landscape stretching out beneath you.
  • Late morning: Begin the descent back to the high camp, retracing your steps along the same route taken during the ascent. Descending from the summit typically takes 3 to 4 hours.
  • Afternoon: Arrive back at the high camp, where you can rest, hydrate, and enjoy a well-deserved meal prepared by your support team. Pack up your gear and prepare for the descent back to base camp.
  • Evening: Descend from the high camp to the base camp, where you’ll reunite with any remaining team members and celebrate your successful summit. Reflect on your accomplishment and savor the memories of your Chimborazo climb as you prepare for the journey back to civilization.
