It is one of the two peaks of the volcano and it is the nearest to Quito. It is at 4,680m. The cable car takes you to Cruz Loma at 4,050m. The roads leading to the top are somewhat complex. You can reach the 'Bear Cave' in an hour and a half and get to the peak in approximately three hours. The other peak, Guagua Pichincha at 4794 m, is still active.
Ecuador and its famous Avenue of The Volcanoes are one of the best places of the world for those who love mountaineering activities, variety of landscapes and challenging surfaces. This time we invite you to a very exciting hiking and ice climbing adventure across the green lands, the secret paths and the snow-covered peaks located along the Ecuador Line.
These 11 days will be very intensive because we will climb up to five different volcanoes. Our base will be El Chaupi, a small town at 3.300 meters, where we will go back after each summit hike in order to rest for the following ascent.
