The Carihuairazo volcano located in the Chimborazo Wildlife Reserve and this in turn being part of the National Protection System of Ecuador, serves as a preservation site for the native llama, alpaca and vicuña. Expect to see these beautiful creatures wandering the land freely in the Reserve
On this trip, we will summit Carihuairazo’s Maxima peak at 5018 meters (16463 feet)!
The mountain itself has a huge top, opened to the north with two major peaks. The Mocha peak stands at 4960 meters (16273 feet) and was first summited in 1880. It wasn’t until 1951 that the Maxima peak (5018 meters/16463 feet) was conquered.
