Antisana Climbing Activity
The Antisana volcano is the fourth highest in the country with an altitude of 5,704m (18,713 feet), climbing to the top of this volcano involves a lot of adventure and adrenaline because it has no shelter that means that we must make a base camp and sleep there, the Antisana Volcano is little explored by tourists that means that there are no defined routes to climbing Antisana.
It is a technical mountain, we will have many cracks, an alpine type climbing is done, the excursion to attack the summit is done from midnight, the approximate time in hours is between 7 to 8 hours, but the reward is indescribable from its summit we have a unique view where we can see the north face of Cotopaxi and the Amazon basin, also has a more rigorous control by the company EPMAPS of the metropolitan area of the district of Quito.
They use the glacier to bring water to the entire city of Quito.
