Illiniza is a stratovolcano in Ecuador, located about 55 km southwest of Quito. Illiniza, a dormant stratovolcano, consists of two snow covered peaks: Illiniza Sur (5,248 m) and Illiniza Norte (5,126 m). Most guidebooks (for example, Lonely Planet Ecuador, Ecuador: A Climbing Guide) spell the mountain with only one "l" as in Iliniza
Elevation Illiniza Sur: 5,248 metres (17,218 ft)
Illiniza Norte: 5,126 m (16,818 ft)
Location Ecuador
Range Andes
Coordinates 0°39′34″S 78°42′49″W
Type Stratovolcano
Age of rock Holocene
Last eruption Unknown
Whilst Illiniza Sur (the southern peak) is a more difficult climb due to its glacial nature, Illiniza Norte requires little or no climbing expertise, and may be done as a trekking peak. A guide is still recommended, however, as the path becomes hard to navigate as it approaches the summit.

  • Cotopaxi is one of the more difficult climb in this section due to its glacier nature and shifting routes, when people say this is easy it is because they haven''t climbed it or they had great weather, no mountain is easy and all these mountains need a lot of respect! It requires little climbing expertise but it is necessary that you are physically fit & well acclimatized.
  • The path becomes a little hard to navigate as it approaches summit due to shifting snow but this is the most amazing not to mention the highest active volcano in the world enjoy.
