Telefrico- Ecuador - What to do at the top


I will be going to Ecuador in August 2014. I was just wondering, we were planning on possibly taking the Telefrico near the end of our day tour in Quito, so we can watch the sun set at the top. Just wondering if there is anything to do at the top?

Some people hike further when they're at the top. We just wandered around a bit. Unfortunately it was very foggy / cloudy when we were there, and we didn't see too much :(

You can go from Teleferico's top to Guagua Pichincha volcano and on the middle of the hike you can hike trough the side of Rucu Pichincha peak. This hike takes aproximately 12 hours. It is awesome!

Saludos cordiales,

There is a small coffee shop up there and if you hike up a little bit, there will be some horses to rent but probably not late in the afternoon. You can hike up for a bit and turn back around whenever you feel like. If you want to summit Rucu pichincha, its the closest and easiest one. It took me 3 hours RT from the teleferico but I've been living here for a while.
