The Chimborazo is known to be the highest point on earth, so imagine the view from Chimborazo Summit! From the peak, you can clearly see the peaks of the other nearby volcanoes, like the Cotopaxi, El Altar and Sangay. It’s also pretty common to see the clouds forming a blanket well below you, with other summits poking out in the distance. It really does make you fell on top of the world.
