Chimborazo is an inactive stratovolcano, and the highest summit in Ecuador. Its last eruption is thought to have occurred some time in the first millennium AD. Its summit is generally regarded as the spot on the surface farthest from the centre of the Earth, at a distance of 6,384.4 kilometres (3,967.1 mi).Chimborazo is located in the Cordillera Occidental of the Andes of central Ecuador, 150 km (93 mi) south-southwest of the capital Quito. It is a neighbour to 5,018 m high Carihuairazo. Chimborazo's majestic summit rises 2,500 m above the surrounding highlands ( 3,500 to 4,000 m) with a 20 km wide base.show more
