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.

Go early in the day, we were the first people up, as it is really peaceful and you can enjoy the amazing views without the hoards. Get advice from local guides on the best day to visit weather wise as they do know when the views will be at their best. Not to be missed

This is a place with a great view of Quito. It is very high and some people may have problems with the altitude but theydo have coca tea when you reach up there. But it is totally worth visiting!

Only spend the $8.50 USD if you have time and money for hikes and horseback riding at the time! We only went up for the view, which was clouded over anyway. DO take the buses up and down, if you can--it cuts out the taxi price. Buses were $1.

Great views of the city, clearer in the mornings. Make sure you walk up the path about 5 minutes, on your left, to get to the horse riding. $10 for about 45 minutes, a real highlight.
