Are you ready for the mother of all PEAKS IN ECUADOR? The ultimate challenge – climb the highest mountain in Ecuador!

The lodge is built with nature in mind. Our cabins use ecological materials, all endemic to the area. Eco sustainability, ecological awareness and durability have been our premises when building each small space in our lodge.

We want to bring you closer to the typical indigenous constructions of the area and at the same time provide you with the necessary comfort to make your stay an unforgettable experience. No luxuries, just pure fun.

For many years, the Chimborazo (6,310m) was thought to be the highest mountain in the world. Due to its location close to the equator, it is the furthest point away from the centre of the Earth and closest point to the Sun. As its altitude is really high, proper acclimatisation is essential. You must have been in the sierra for at least a week and climbed above 5,000 metres in that time. Snow up to the knees is not uncommon and a high level of fitness is required, as the summit climb will certainly push you to your physical limits. Prepare for trekking and glacier climbing, not for the faint-hearted!
