Ecuador is a country located in the northwest of South America, whose mainland borders with Colombia to the north and Peru to the south and east, in addition to the Pacific coast in the west. Gained independence from Spain in 1822, becoming part of Gran Colombia along with current Colombia, Venezuela and Panama, until his separation of it in 1830.

Mountaineering

Most of the peaks of Ecuador are attractive to local and foreign mountaineers are - apart from the height - relative easy access. They have shelters to 4.800m in height and several companies offer guide service or trekking.

Ecuador offers hikers an incredible diversity of mountain ecosystems and cultures to explore. Just a day trip from Quito, the modern capital, you can find peaks and glaciers above 5000 meters (Cayambe, Antisana and Illinizas), Amazonian rainforests, cloud forests and sunny beaches with lost Inca treasures. Whether you decide to venture out on your own or you prefer to hire a local service guides for planning logistics
