It was once one of the tallest mountains on the planet until a giant eruption destroyed its summit over 500 years ago and created its famous cathedral altar shape of 9 peaks around a crater lake.
The 3 day El Altar trek climbs from the green valleys carved by glaciers at the mountains based into Andean paramo and mountanous terrain that looks like Mordor.The highest point in the trek reaches the 4,800 meter snowline below El Altars glacial peaks where we will see silver, orange, and blue lagoons as well as spectacular views of Chimborazo and Sangay in clear weather.
We leave the tents at the campsite and climb up to 4,500 meters and explore the many waterfalls and five multicoloured lagoons (the star lagoon, the mandur lagoon, blue lagoon, black lagoon, and green lagoon) underneath the 5,319m (17,451 ft) peak of El Altar.
