Best to get there early when it opens, as less people around. Not much to do except walk around the area, but if you are athletic or adventurous, take in part of the hike up the volcano trek. Horse rides are also available and would...More

I bucked up my fear of able cars and tramways and rode with friends in one of these gondola type cable cars that seat four to six people. I'd do it again in a heartbeat! We hiked at the top of the mountain taking in...More

I can't say enough about the views from the Teleferico cars and at the top. It's about an 18 minute ride each way. Once you're at the top though, the facilities there are in dire need up refreshing. Looks like not much has been done...More

Riding up the teleferico was great and we enjoyed the ride, the view, our fellow passengers, and the beautiful flute music being played at the top. Got some great photos and conversation with people from all over the world.

On our way to the Galapagos Islands, we had a free day in Quito. We decided to take a taxi to the Teleferico and ride up to the top and hike around. We had a fairly clear day and were able to see the entire...More

The Teleferico was exactly what we were looking for. Spectacular views of the city, enjoyable and leisurely ride up the mountain in a cable car, and the added bonus of nature trails to explore upon our arrival. We enjoyed the chapel and the cafe, and...More

After reading the tour book's lukewarm review of this attraction, we were somewhat apprehensive. But we decided to give it a try. From what we understand, this attraction was much more popular when it was built in 2005. Now, the appeal seems to have worn...More

On a clear day, the view of Quito and the entire valley it sits in is spectacular. Take a jacket, at 12,900+ feet in altitude it is chilly up at the top. It can also induce altitude sickness so be careful when at the top.

Yes, you can camp there. There is no cost. There is also a refuge cabin near the top of the Guagua Pichincha which is near the crater and is an active volcano. You can see the crater usually early in the morning before the... More

They should be operating Christmas Eve, like any business in EC. If you’re staying in a hotel in the old town, ask the concierge.
