Iliniza Norte is considered one of the symbolic mountains to ensure an excellent acclimatization. Even though the route doesn’t represent a high technical level, it will give us a good experience walking on loose rock and sand.
Our adventure starts in the morning departing from Quito and heading south for about an hour and thirty minutes. The hike will start at 4,000m though Polylepis trees and typical vegetation from the Ecuadorian highlands. It will take us about 5 hours to reach the summit, so we can enjoy the view, the company, and the experience. Then we will start descending to the vehicles and return to Quito in the afternoon.
