Climb mountains not so the world can see you, but so you can see the world.

Learn Mountain Climbing in Ecuador

Ecuador's famous Avenue of the Volcanoes in the Andes mountains is the perfect place to learn and practice mountain climbing

Want to learn how to climb the renowned mount Chimborazo?

My father considered a walk among the mountains as the equivalent of churchgoing.

Trekking the Ecuadorian Andes

Before mounting a summit attempt on Chimborazo its important to acclimatize

Once your flight touches down in the Ecuadorian capital—2,850 m (9,350 ft) above sea level on the planet's equator—we explore Quito's UNESCO heritage colonial center

After that culture fix, its time to get sweaty as we head upwards into the mountains for a real feel of high-altitude

Wise man is a good Sherpa; he takes you to the highest places!

What our Clients say

  • I wanted to get into climbing for a while but the huge cost prevented me from doing so. When I found out about Ecuador being a great place to learn how to climb that was nowhere near as expensive as the Alps or Himalayas I jumped at the chance. I felt very safe because the guides had years of experience and also spoke English. We went through the technical side of things first and the same guide was with us the whole way. Unfortunately there was a storm when we tried to climb Mount Cayambe so we had to turn back but the weather was great for the rest of the trip and summiting Cotopaxi and Chimborazo were the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. Something I will never forget. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone!
