Chimbarazo Volcano

We stayed here at Estrella de Chimbarazo, at 4,000 meters. These really nice but rustic lodgings are used as a basecamp for Expediciones Andinas. This is a good place to relax after a couple days of driving or to acclimatize before trying to hike at these high elevations. Chimarazo is the furthest point from the center of the earth. Our planet has a bulge at the equator, so it adds quite a distance, so that is what puts it over the "height" of the Himilayas.
