The equator runs through the centre of the country (hence the country’s name) and the Andes run the full length of the mainland, with snow-capped volcanoes, traditional markets and beautiful colonial cities. The summit of Chimborazo, Ecuador’s tallest mountain, is actually the furthest point from the centre of the earth. You can also visit some of the best preserved jungle in the Amazon rainforest and the cloud forest near Quito contains an incredible variety of birdlife.
