Itinerary


  1. Visited Places:
  2. Chimborazo Reserve Entrance

ou will be picked up at 8.30 a.m. for the scenic drive to Chimborazo Reserve. We make short stops for photos of the mountain and observation of the vicuñas, the wild cousins of llamas and alpacas. After about 1,5 hour drive arrival at the Carrel hut at 4850 m. / 15912 ft. Here we start the 1-kilometer hike on a trail of rocks and – depending on the weather in previous days – snow. The trail gradually climbs to the Whymper hut (5050 m. / 16.568 ft.) and on to Condor Cocha. This tiny glacial lake at 5100 m / 16.732 ft. is a great spot to contemplate the ever changing mountain scenery.

After the hike we prepare for the bike ride. The guide gives a safety briefing and you can do a short test ride in the flat area near the Carrel hut. Then off you go, zigzagging down with Chimborazo towering over you! From 4850 m. / 15.912 ft. you will cycle down an amazing change of scenery – from the snow covered mountain slopes to the moonlike volcanic landscape to green farming grounds and indigenous villages towards the end. In the village of San Juan (2900 m. / 9514 ft.), we have lunch in a local restaurant. Return to Riobamba around 15.00 p.m.
