Chimborazo Lodge

Chimborazo Lodge
Chimborazo Lodge is located at 4000 meters of altitude, at the foot of the Chimborazo volcano, in the historic Totorillas Valley and just a few steps from the Chimborazo Fauna Production Reserve.

We are surrounded by a very privileged natural environment where we have managed to preserve the fragile ecosystem of the páramo, with its beauty, its unique species of flora and fauna, and the endemic “Estrella del Chimborazo” hummingbird that inhabits it.
The main cabin was built on the old foundation of a historic dairy farm dating back to pre-Columbian times. In it is the dining room, a cozy area for reading and resting around a warm fireplace; bar and kitchen.

We have 3 cabins with 4 very comfortable rooms each, for the lodging of our clients, which offer heaters and private bathrooms, and are decorated with photographs, paintings and original drawings of the fauna and flora of the environment, as well as old objects collected on trips and climbs around the world.
