With a peak elevation of 6,263 m (20,548 ft), Chimborazo is the highest mountain in Ecuador. It is the highest peak near the equator. Chimborazo is not the highest mountain by elevation above sea level, but its location along the equatorial bulge makes its summit the farthest point on the Earth's surface from the Earth's center.

WHY WE CREATED PARKS AND TRIBES.

 

How it began

Our jungle biologists started organizing national park tours in the nineteen eighties because we were concerned that many operators of ecotours did not organize tours to the national parks. Most tour operators took - and still take - their tourists to easily reachable patches of secondary forest. We felt that national parks needed to create employment and economic opportunities and that most opportunities were related to visitation of the national parks.
