This is the only mountain in the whole world that passes through the equatorial line. After the Chimborazo and the Cotopaxi, this is the third biggest mountain in Ecuador,and also considered the one that has the most beautiful glaciers in the whole country.
Its technical level is considered high, reason why this mountain is not climbed frequently; but the ones that challenge Cayambe are always amazed by the beautiful scenery they find.
Climbing this altitude is very difficult so we recommend two different things. First be acclimatized at the altitude of 3000m and second one climbing twice around 5000m in the same week.
If you are clueless of where can you do this, ask for our acclimatization packages! We have great deals, without mentioning that taking the package increases the probability of reaching the top. Since Cotopaxi has its own micro-climate, you must be prepared with warm clothes.
