Did you know you can book your dream expedition to Ecuador? Yeah! right here with Project Cordillera. We hope you’ll join us on one of the epic expeditions we now have available.
The summits of Ecuador, situated as they are on the equatorial bulge, are the places on Earth furthest from the central of our planet. So, according to one measurement, Chimborazo is the highest mountain in the world!
As a project, we are in a constant search for improvement, the team we are, our processes, places we go, and the expeditions that we offer. We are in a constant search for the best climbing spots in the cordilleras of beautiful Latin America.
At this point, Ecuador is for us the perfect place to go and to expand. It is located in between Colombia and Perú (where we already work), offering similar beauty and diversity in its landscapes. Furthermore, Volcanoes in the country are pretty significant within the history of mountaineering and what mountains mean to people globally.
Natural diversity that is more accessible for everyone
A great new is that It offers greater accessibility for climbers of all levels; climbs and treks are not technically difficult and the most of them can be done in few days, for a great and quick scape away from city activities.
You are invited to come with us, and we will be more than happy to provide all expertise and advice for the following trips:
- Big volcano climbs: Ilinizas, Chimborazo and Cotopaxi
- Beautiful treks in Condorpaxi
- Amazing expeditions: 5 day Iliniza North & Cotopaxi, 9 day Humboldt and 12 day Cotopaxi & Chimborazo
Ecuador is home to around 25 active volcanoes, some of them rising over 5000 meters such as Cotopaxi and Chimborazo. An interesting fact about them is that they put you closer to space and and further away from the earth’s core. How is that? Everest is the tallest mountain the world. This is partly because earth is not a perfect sphere; therefore, if you measure from the core, you’ll find Chimborazo closer to space due to its location on the equator where the earth rises significantly higher than areas further south or north.
