Climbing Antisana in 2 days

Between Pichincha & Napo Provinces – Ecuador






2 days


Day 1: Machachi (10,170ft/3.100m) – Antisana Base Camp (15,092ft/4.600m)

We will leave from Machachi early in the morning and drive east for about 3,5 hours through the Andean highlands until we get to Laguna Santa Lucia (14,118ft/4.300m). Depending on the road conditions, we will drive up for another 30 minutes or more, to the end of the road. Where is the base camp (15,092ft/4.600m). We will use the rest of the day for relaxation and hang out until dinner time wich will be served by late afternoon (-/-/D)

Day 2: Antisana Summit (18,891ft/5.758m) – Machachi 

We will wake up at midnight and depart to the top (18,891ft/5.758m) around 1 am after a light breakfast. The climb will take us about 6 to 8 hours. The first part is about an hour hike to the glacier, where we put the crampons on and start the glacier ascent. Once at the summit we will take our time for pictures of the crater and surroundings and then we will head back to the base camp in 2 to 3 hours. At the base camp we will rest, pack our belongings, have something to eat, drink and go down to the car, from where we return back to Machachi (B/-/-)
