The third highest mountain in Ecuador.
The Cayambe is located 70 km northeast of Quito and is, after Chimborazo and Cotopaxi, the third highest mountain in Ecuador. It is located in the Cayambe-Coca Ecological Reserve in the eastern Andes Mountains. To reach the peaks, 2 days are needed.
The ascent to the Cayambe lasts approximately 7 hours and the descent lasts approximately 3 hours. The ascent of this volcano is a little technical and it is preferable to have knowledge and experience in mountaineering. At the top you can enjoy impressive landscapes, such as the sighting of Lake San Pablo and the Cuichocha Lagoon. The summit is more than 5,000 meters high, therefore, an adequate acclimatization process is required, and a good physical condition because the walk is long.
