Chimborazo is the highest volcano and mountain in Ecuador, and its summit is the farthest point on the planet from its center with an altitude of 6263.47 meters above sea level. It is located in the central Andes, next to the city of Riobamba, 150 km southwest of Quito and 145 km from Guayaquil.
Due to the Earth's rotation, the diameter in the equatorial zone is the largest on the planet. Thanks to this, if the distance from the center of the Earth is measured, its summit is the most distant point, surpassing by more than two kilometers that of the mountain with the highest altitude above sea level, Everest.
