The farthest point from the center of Earth.
El Chimborazo is the highest mountain in Ecuador and due to the flattening of the earth in the polar ice caps, the summit is the farthest point to space from the center of Earth. Taking the center of the earth as a point of reference, the Chimborazo surpasses Mount Everest by two kilometers.
The inactive volcano is the dream of many mountaineers. El Chimborazo is located 150 km southwest of Quito and 20 km northwest of the city of Riobamba. The volcano is inside the Chimborazo Wildlife Reserve. It is the habitat of the native camel species of the Andes such as the vicuña, llama, and alpaca. The summit of Chimborazo can usually be reached in 2 days. The trip lasts approximately 12 hours (9 hours of ascent and 3 hours of descent). However, we recommend that you carry out an acclimatization process before climbing Chimborazo volcano.
