If you’re a climber that’s visiting Ecuador, the Chimborazo Volcano is one that you can’t miss! The Chimborazo’s claim to fame is that it’s peak is the world’s furthest point from the earth’s center. I know what you’re thinking. Everest is the highest mountain, everyone knows that. That’s partly true – measured from sea level, Everest is the highest mountain… but it’s not the closest to the sun. This is because the shape of the earth isn’t a perfect sphere. It actually bulges towards the middle (like many of us do). This means that the top of the Chimborazo is well over a mile further away from the earth’s center than Mount Everest! You literally will not find a point higher than the peak of the Chimborazo volcano.

There are 21 volcanoes in the Galapagos Islands that emerge from the ocean and form the Archipelago. Of these, 13 volcanoes are active! Ever since Charles Darwin showed up here in 1835, there have been over 60 recorded eruptions on 6 of the volcanoes. Many people are fascinated by how such a delicate ecosystem - complete with its own micro climate - exists in such a volatile place! Historically, the critically endangered wildlife of the Galapagos has always been on the brink of destruction.
