The Chimborazo is the highest volcano of Ecuador (6310 meters). It was estimated that the last eruption was around 550 A.D. and is therefore an inactive volcano. The volcano is located in the Reserva de Producción Faunística Chimborazo. This reserve is famous for the vicuñas (a kind of llama) that live here.
Restaurant tip Within the reserve are no facilities like restaurants or shops. The closest recommendable restaurant is located 30 minutes from the entrance of the reserve:
