Chimborazo

Chimborazo

Located in the Andean Range, Chimborazo is Ecuador’s highest peak (20,565 feet). This inactive volcano towers above indigenous communities near the city of Riobamba. Due to the earth’s bulge at the equator, Chimborazo’s summit is the furthest point from the center of the earth. Clouds usually obscure the behemoth volcano, but on this day we were able to pull over on the Pan-American Highway to take in the view from the south.The drive to Riobamba from the village of San Bernardo usually takes about one and a half hours. San Bernardo is located in a small valley, roughly 10,500 feet above sea level.
