Our adventure begins in the city of Quito at 6am; it’s an hour long drive to the parking lot called “La Virgen” (3900m) where we will start our ascent. It will take us about 4 to 6 hours to climb to the summit and we will have to pass some difficult sections on the way. After taking pictures of the breathtaking landscapes we will head back down to the parking lot where our private transportation will be waiting. Return to Quito.

We will leave from Quito (9,186ft/2800m) in the morning and drive through the Avenue of the Volcanoes until we get to the village of “El Chaupi”. We will continue driving up until we get to “La Virgen parking lot” (12,795ft/3900m). Once there, we will start a 3-hour hike up to the “Nuevos Horizontes Hut” (15,580ft/4750m). After relaxing for 15 minutes, we will continue hiking up towards the saddle formed between both peaks and then to Illiniza Norte summit (16,818ft/ 5126 m). The approach to the top involves an easy 3-hour scrambling. Once at the summit, we will enjoy and admire the beautiful surroundings, then return to the La Virgen parking lot and drive back to Quito.
