Our Cayambe and Chimborazo combined expedition is an ideal choice for trekkers and mountaineers who wish to gain experience beyond the alpine altitudes and would like to climb Ecuador’s current “Big Two”. We also combine the best of both worlds: trekking the humid Andean Forest – with one of the most bio-diverse ecosystem in the planet – and two spectacular high-altitude glaciated climbs. Despite a popular impression to the contrary, these are tough climbs and the effort required to climb all these mountains in one expedition should not be underestimated. Ecuador is without doubt the land of volcanoes, with more than thirty significant peaks in this small country.
Benegas Brothers uses only expert guides and our low climber to guide ratio (2:1) which translates into higher summit success and most important a safer climb. Our gradual acclimatization itinerary including the incredible Condor trek aloud us to explore in the deep of the Ecuadorian rainforest to the mystical altiplano giving us a plenty of time to prepare ourselves for this climb.
