Volcano Cayambe is the 3rd highest volcano in Ecuador (5790m’ high). It is located in the Cayambe – Coca Ecological Reserve in the Cordillera Oriental of the Andes, 70′ north-east of Quito. At the altitude of 4690m’ on its south slope, is the highest point in the world crossed by the Equator and the only point on the Equator with snow cover. From the Cayambe you can see the landscape of the northern hills of Quito and surrounding cities. This tour goes to a height of 5000m’. It is important that you are prepared for this kind of altitude. We recommend acclimatizing at least two days around 3000m’.
