Beschreibung Iliniza Norte - 5105 Meters - Machachi - Ecuador

Los Ilinizas, twin peaks opposite of the Volcan Cotopaxi. The south peak is a pretty hard one and dangerous as well. However, the north peak is a straight forward rock scramble and a popular peak to get used to the high altitude before climbing Volcan Cotopaxi.

One can drive up to about 4000 Meters but only with a 4 WD. Cost is around 10 US$ from El Chaupi but it safes you about 3 hours of walking. From El Chaupi it takes about 6 hours to the refugio but it is for free. The way to the refugio from El Chaupi is well marked and hard to miss. The refugio is 10 US$ a person a night. Camping is for free except the 5 US$ entrance fee to the Reserva Ecologica Los Ilinizas

The climb from the refugio to the peak is straight forward and hard to miss. There are little stone men and always kind of a trail. Just look for the foot prints.


From Machachi take a bus to El Chaupi, possible to hire 4WD to the parking area, from there 3 hours to the refugio
