I planned to go there with a friend thinking that this was a public ecological reserve, however, there is a limitation if you want to go to the Antisana volcano - even just to have a look- You need a "Salvoconducto" or from EMMAP that allows you to enter there...I find this ridiculous and this information is not provided at...

We visited Antisana Ecological Preserve on a birding tour through Tropical Birding. From the moment we reached the preserve, we saw gorgeous views and multiple birds, including several condors only meters away.
