The summit of Iliniza Norte is the easy one of the twin-peaked mountain Ilinizas. It is a rocky mountain with no permanent snow, and an ideal acclimatization climb. With clear weather you will have marvelous views of Cotopaxi.

Day 1. We leave Riobamba at 8:30 a.m. and drive for about 3 hours to the foot of the Ilinizas. At the La Virgen area we will start the 3-hour hike up to the NuevosHorizontes refuge at 4650 m. / 15.256 f. During this hike you will have to carry your backpack with the climbing gear.

Day 2. At 4:00 a.m. we leave the camp. The climb to the summit takes 4 to 5 hours. After the descent we have lunch in a restaurant and then drive back to Riobamba. Arrive at about 16:00 p.m.

DIFFICULTY: moderate; a basic acclimatization is recommended

DEPARTURE: any day
