Iliniza Sur Ecuador 0576a

The South Illiniza offers different climbing experiences with different routes, all of them demanding technical skills.

Day 1: Early departure from Quito by car towards Machachi and then continue to the hacienda “El Refugio” at 2800m.  Here the road changes to a mud trail up to the Virgin Maid statue at 3300m. This is followed by a trek to the mountain hut through beautiful scenery, with contrasting moor lands and sandy ridges. Stay overnight in the hut (4600m). (LB, D).

Day 2: At 02:00 am wakeup and breakfast. Rope up and safety checks before beginning the trek towards the plateau at the base of the South and North Illiniza peaks. The climb to the summit takes approximately 5-6 hours. Back to the hut for refreshments and then trek down to the hacienda to take our car back to Quito. (B, LB).
