Description

The Ilinizas Volcanoes are located about 60 km southwest of Quito. Ilinizas is the perfect place to get acclimated to the altitude and scope out excellent views of the central valleys and neighboring peaks. With clear skies, you will even have a great view of the currently erupting Cotopaxi Volcano from the summit. Iliniza South peak is the sixth highest elevation in Ecuador with 5250 mt, while Iliniza North is the eighth highest one (5125 mt).

According to geologists, there was one volcano that exploded and collapsed, transforming this huge volcano into two peaks separated by a saddle about 1 kilometer long. In fact, while climbing either one, you will observe at the bottom of the old caldera the remaining green-blue lake.

Whether you are preparing for a bigger climb or just want to challenge yourself with the reward of epic views at the summit, this trip offers an opportunity that you won’t forget. With a 5-hour hike to reach the summit of the north peak in one day, you will have plenty of time to take in the great sights and experience the Andes.
