Climb Volcano Corazon

Climbing Volcano Corazón 4788 m

El Corazón is located on the western side of the Avenue of Volcanos, south of Quito. It is a common acclimatization climb for mountaineers preparing themselves for ascents on 5000 - 6000+ meter peaks. It is named such because some claim to see the shape of a heart on the mountain in two gullies from the northwest.The hike and climb is through the beautiful tall grass vegetation of a Paramo.

Detailed Program

Day 1: Quito – Corazón 4788 m

The starting point of this exciting trip will be in El Chaupi Village, a small town famous for its agricultural industry. We will be taken to Illinizas Ecological Reserve from where we will start the hike up to the volcano.

During our walk we can admire the green fields and the nature around us. Although some hours later the trail starts to get steeper, its landscapes are unbelievably beautiful. The whole climb will take us about 7 hours, so that we always recommend some previous mountaineering experience.

Once in Corazon Summit, the viewpoint will speak for itself. We can enjoy a panoramic sight of the famous Avenue of The Volcanoes and other Ecuadorian peaks of the region. After a deserved lunch we will return to El Chaupi by car and celebrate with a delicious coffee at the Andes Alpes Cafe.
