טיפוסי הרים

טיפוס להר הגעש צימבורסו

Ecuador´s highest Mountain, Ecuador

צ'ימבורסו הוא ההר הכי גבוה באקוודור ובמשך שנים נחשב להר הכי גבוה בעולם. ההר עדיין מחזיק בתואר של הנקודה הרחוקה ביותר ממרכז כדור הארץ.
הר הצ'ימבורסו ממוקם 150 ק"מ דרום מערב מקיטו. רוחבו וקוטרו מעידים על גילו הרב. זהו הר ענק מימדים אשר חוקרי הרי געש טוענים שהוא מורכב משני הרי געש נפרדים. בהשוואה לקוטופקסי, זמן הטיפוס ארוך יותר (בערך 12 שעות) וכולל אימוני טיפוס קרחונים, ארוחת ערב ולילה של שינה בבקתת המטפסים (בגובה 5000 מטרים). הטיפוס הוא אתגר אמיתי ומציע למטפסים את ההזדמנות לשבור את מחסום ה-6,000 מטרים.

Climbing at this altitude can be very difficult, so please be sure that you are well prepared for this climbing tour. We recommend acclimatizing by spending at least six nights above 3,000m(9842 ft) and climbing twice around 5,000m(16404 ft) in the same week. This can be achieved through a acclimatization program such as the 7 or 5 day program. Following an acclimatization program offers a much higher chance of making a successful climb of Chimborazo.
