On the second day of your stay in Ecuador, for further acclimatization, you can choose a small volcano that you like more. One of the most popular volcano is the Pichincha Volcano (4696 m), which hangs directly over Quito itself and in clear weather from the top there are stunning views of the capital of Ecuador. From Quito, you can climb here first by the Teleferico cable car up to 4200 m and then walk along the marked trail to the very top. Many Ecuadorians and tourists like to spend time here on a good day.

Our Rustam continued his acclimatization here, accompanied by a guide Ivan. An unexpected (but hopefully pleasant) meeting with a representative of the local fauna took place at the top.

Alexander climbed another volcano, about an hour and a half drive from Quito, Guaga Pichincha (4776 m). He's a little taller and there are fewer people here. It was quite cloudy and a solid cloud cover began above 3500 m, so this time it was not possible to shoot stunning shots from the top. But the mood is excellent and the acclimatization process is going according to plan.

 And everything is still ahead!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The group of the 7 Summits Club on the move to the Horombo hut received the name "Saber-Toothed Koloboks". Participants saw the top of Kilimanjaro for the first time

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Evgeny Fedyunin reports from Tanzania:

31.10. Jambo Rafiki! The Saber-Toothed Koloboks group of the 7 Summits Club left the equatorial jungle today. We walked through the heather thickets, crossing the moorland zone (grassy marshes), along a wide path to the Horombo hut (3720m). On the way we met a small chameleon and very impudent ravens. Today we finally saw the Kibo cone — the summit of Kilimanjaro!

Everyone is in a good mood and ready for further acclimatization.
