Antisana (5.758m) 2 days


Day 1: After meeting in Quito rather early in the morning, our driver will take us east to a small village named Pintag where you will be able to take photographs of the admirable scenery before you. After a two hour ride we will arrive to the base of the mountain at 4,550 meters above sea level. Here we will collect our luggage and walk for another hour until reaching our camp in one of the glaciers… the standard altitude of the camping site is 4,750 meters above sea level. Lunch and dinner will be served by our team and you will have chance to rest until 11pm

Day 2: At 11 pm our team will serve you a nutritional and substantial breakfast and will help you get ready to start your journey to the top of this majestic mountain. Reaching the summit normally takes 7 hours and it’s a true challenge due to the altitude, the breaches and almost vertical paths …but it’s all worth it. Making our way down will take another two hours; our team will be waiting for you with lunch and a warm seat on your ride back to Quito.
