Go up on a clear day for great views of the city. Get there early to beat any crowds. If you want to hike, take the ride to the top and start following the trails. You can turn around whenever you want, or go all the way to the top of a volcano. It's about a 2-3 hour hike up,... More

My first time in Quito, trying to find something interesting, this place is really nice, there is a cabin up to the hill, beautiful views of the whole Quito city and you can climb up to 4050 meters above the sea level :-)

Take a bus or a cab to the teleferico gondolas on the east side of Quito. The gondolas climb over 1,000 ft. At the top is a beautiful view of the city and beyond. It is a bit windy on top and can be cool. You can hike some trails around the summit. There is one trail that goes all... More

I interend in Quito for 3 months and now I live in Quito and have traveled all over the country, and this is still my favorite view, hands-down. I personally like to go right before sunset, and stay until almost the last gondola down. Wear warm clothes and be careful since the oxygen levels are really low! I get quite... More

This was the highlight of my trip. At the end of the tram ride up we took horses further up the trail. It was about an hour trail ride. The view was amazing.

The cable car takes you up 13500ft, there is an empty café and a small church up top. The view is amazing, the air is very fresh, you can see several other mountains and Quito. There might be a hiking trail but it is not recommended. Other than that, it is pretty desolate. Cost is $8.00 for non Ecuadorian adult.... More

You can climb up to 4.100 mts high (13.450 ft) in this teleferique. If it is a sunny day you have luck to observe the Volcano Avenue, like Cayambe, Antisana, Cotopaxi, Illinizas, Rumiñahui, Corazon, Pasochoa, Sincholagua at least, and also the city of Quito..!

Exhilarating to be so high. View was fantastic. Some people found breathing difficult. There are 2 oxygen stations one at the ticket office and one at the top height for people who feel light headed and need oxygen to perk them up. Pretty mountain flowers at height.

A bonus if you are a solo traveller, they want 6 people in a gondola, so you can queue jump. Nice journey up the mountain. Restaurants and gift shops at the top. Lots of great photo opportunities. Hike back down is quite easy but remember the high altitude. Gondola up. Enjoy the view. Take photographs. Have a coffee and get... More

It is completely abandoned, it looks like a place taken out of a horror movie. It's a shame because the view from the top is amazing.
