    Snow Exists In the Tropics, and Ken Jennings Can Tell You Where to Find It : Condé Nast Traveler Cayambe is one of the world’s sixty tallest volcanoes, all of which are located in the Andes. It’s only erupted once in recorded memory, in 1785, and today it’s a popular destination for mountaineers (or “Andenistas,” as alpinists in the Andes are called.)

Climbing Volcán Cayambe (Ecuador). 'Climbers are spoiled for choice with the range of volcanoes and mountains in Ecuador’s northern Andes, but Volcán Cayambe is definitely the most impressive of all. Soaring majestically over the town of the same name, its snow-dusted peak shimmering in the sunlight year round, this extinct volcano is Ecuador’s third-highest peak and the highest part of the equator anywhere on earth.' www.lonelyplanet....
