Overview

This is one of the coldest mountains of Ecuador, but due to general warming and the ash deposits from eruptions of the nearby active Tungurahua volcano, the snow layer is very thin or sometimes non-existent. however full climbing gear is required as well as excellent acclimatization and fitness.
