"Chimborazo" Provincia del Chimborazo by MalenaN

Provincia del Chimborazo Travel Guide: 63 reviews and 390 photos

When I visited Ecuador for the first time, in 2011, I climbed Volcán Cotopaxi, which is the second highest mountain in Ecuador with its 5897m. It was a wonderful experience and I wanted to come back to climb the highest mountain, Volcán Chimborazo which is 6310m high. So, I came back to Ecuador in 2012, but then I broke my wrist, and when I was back in 2013 I got a fever and cough and didn’t feel well enough to get acclimatized for such a high climb. Well, I’m going back this year (2014) and this time I really hope I will make it to the top of Chimborazo. Third time lucky!

Even though I didn’t feel well enough to climb Chimborazo in 2013 I came here on a tour to visit the refugios and then bike down from there for several hours. It was a great tour!

      I do hope so! I plan to spend three weeks getting acclimatized to high altitude and to do the climb. And of course I hope for good weather and great views from the top :)

      Chimborazo is impressive and I do hope that you will get there one day Anna. For now, places like Bintan Island doesn't sound to be too bad.

    Fabulous scenery around here. Liked your accommodation, looked more upmarket to what you usually stay in.

      Volcán Chimborazo is impressive! The hotel room was $25 including breakfast. Often I stay where it is a little cheaper, but this year I even stayed at a lovely place in Puyo where I paid $40 :)

      It was a fantastic cycling tour from Chimborazo! Next time I hope to climb to the summit (6320m). Thanks for visiting my pages Don!
