The Chimborazo volcano is the highest elevation of the Ecuadorian Andes with a height of 6310 MASL and paradoxically the highest of the planet if we measure from the center of it. The program is mostly developed within the Chimborazo faunal production reserve and its surroundings where many indigenous communities of the area coexist, mostly descendants of the Puruháes, ethnic group that inhabited the area until the arrival of the Incas and later the Spaniard.
