NORTHERN ILINIZAS 1 DAY
Ilinizas is an ancient volcano located south of Quito that split into two different peaks about 5000 years ago. This tour climbs the northern peak, reaching an altitude of 5126m. Northern Ilinizas is a moderate trek followed by a exhilarating but easy climb to reach the top. If you are willing to climb Cotopaxi, this is a great tour for acclimatization.
This trek takes approximately 6 hours to reach the height of 5126m. It is important that you are prepared for this kind of altitude so we highly recommend to be acclimatized around an altitude of at least 3000m.
