The ride up Teleferico was beautiful, but once you get to the top it is amazing! You can see the entire colorful city and beyond. They state that some people may become light headed because of how high the top is, that didn't happen to us, but I did get a little light headed once we got back down which... More

A popular attraction for local tourists. Go early in the morning before the cloud cover comes in. Once at the top we hired horses and rode for an hour way above the city. Can get cool so wear layers. Great walking trails.

Incredible view of the city, the volcanoes, the planes landing on the airport and the valley. Simply breathtaking. Take a jacket and a pullover. The only thing: you must get there in a taxi, it is way more practical or the slope is pretty steep.

We went to the Teleferico on our last day in Quito. The cost was about $8 I think. We took a taxi to the top from Mariscal for about $5. We recommend taking the taxi to the top of the mountain and not walking. Very cold and windy on top, so bring a coat. The observation deck offers 3 spectacular... More

Be aware and wear as if you were in Canada because the elevation is +4160 m. It is nice for hiking and fantastic view every minute due to change in fog location and density. You may see horses and species of plants, birds. However, it could be more beautiful by planting some flowers. There is a very nice place for... More

I would recommend going up before sunset and watching the city light up. Good place to start a hike up the mountain. Somewhat difficult to get to.

An excellent side trip if the weather is clear. Great views of Quito and the surrounding area. The trip up is a neat experience, especially for kids. Bring a coat as it is at least 10 to 15 degrees cooler up there. Once you get there, there are a few small restaurants and carry outs in the building which are... More

My cousin and I got there late in the afternoon and started our ascent. It was very cool seeing the city shrink below us. The slow and steady crawl up the mountain was would have been soothing if not for the eerie creaking of the steel cables. Once at the top the view is incredible. The highest altitude I've been...

The view of Quito was breathtaking. We were able to hike to 14K feet. The air was a little thin, but the trek was worth every minute.
