Hike to the top of the world

Activities

The hike to the top of the world is a very attractive and attainable mountain hike for fit hikers. It is also a great option for acclimatization if you are planning to climb one of the volcanoes or higher altitude peaks in Ecuador. Pre-arranged early morning transport will have you up 4000m, just in time to see an extraordinary sunrise on the east side of the Andes with 360 degree views over the Cordillera mountain range. After a plethora of photos, climb up through the paramo until you reach the antenna’s.
