Antisana is an impressive and beautiful 5,755 m (18,881 ft) high volcano and the 4th highest volcano in Ecuador. It is located in the Antisana Ecological Reserve along the western margin of the Cordillera Real, 50 km (31,1 miles) southeast of Quito. The Mountain has 4 peaks and incredible ice forms, therefore reaching the top is a unique opportunity to enjoy one of the impressive volcanoes in the Andean Mountains.
The climb itself is considered very technical and requires knowledge and experience in mountain climbing. The climb takes between 6 – 8 hours, while the descent will be around 3 hours. The landscape at sunrise is incredible with the reflection of the volcano in the surrounding lagoons inside the reserve. With a bit of luck, you will also have incredible views of other surrounding volcanoes such as the Cotopaxi, Illinizas, or Chimborazo.
We also offer you our Climbing and Glacier Course in Ecuador for the ones that do not have experience in glacier climbing.
Climbing high altitudes needs previous training. If you are not correctly acclimatized you can suffer from different altitude illnesses.
We strongly recommend making an Acclimatization Program before climbing the highest peaks in Ecuador.
