” ALTAR – SANGAY NATIONAL PARK ”

Trekking program

The Altar is an old volcano located east of Riobamba. Its crater measures 3 km. in diameter and was formed by a prehistoric eruption. Its highest peak, called Obispo (5319m), located in the south of the crater, has spectacular lagoons (4200m) inside. The Altar is known as the most impressive mountain in Ecuador but also the most difficult to ascend. However, the surroundings are extraordinary, particularly the lagoons and the south side of the volcano.
