Nestled at the foot of Chimborazo, Ecuador’s highest volcano (6.310 meters) and the furthest point from the center of the earth, is our unique and exclusive Mountain Lodge Estrella del Chimborazo (Chimborazo Hill Star) located at Chimborazo Base Camp. The Historical “Tambo de Totorillas” (a roadside inn) was once located in this place, along the old “Royal Road” between Guayaquil and Quito. We have rebuilt this inn, combining its traditional vernacular architecture with modern comfort and services that now we offer in this lodge. This camp is the center of our Chimborazo related activities at 4,000 meters of altitude, a place where our customers may rest, eat and acclimatize confortably.

Next to our mountain refuge a few meters from the creek, we have built two cabins and we named them “Condor and Curiquingue” like two of the andean birds.
The construction was made by using materials from the region and preserving the native architecture from the wasteland. Each cabin has four double bedrooms, two full bathrooms - one per floor - and a small family room with a wonderful view.
The cabins are decorated with beautiful ceramic tiles, wooden structures and floors, and with photographs, engravings and objects from the Natural and Alpine History of the Chimborazo. Each bedroom is named after a famous mountaineer, scientist or traveler from the XIX Century, that once visited this mountain.
- 8 double bedrooms, 4 per cabin / 2 per floor
- 4 full bathrooms: 1 per floor shared by two bedrooms
- Electricity, Hot Water, Heating
