The Teleferico was a fun experience with partner and sister, The view was breathtaking, even though it started to rain and thunder half way through, this made the experience even more adventurous. We couldn't stop laughing our heads off!
Fantastic experience, worth it every second of it. Spectacular views of Quito and the Sierra with the volcanoes. If you skip it, it's like you haven't been to Quito. Definitely a must even if you scared of hights, it is totally safe.

The entrance to the cable car is located up a very steep hill and it’s not advisable to walk. A taxi to here from the center of the modern part of town was about three dollars. We went about any 10:30am and there was a...More
The Teleferico was so much fun! For $8.50 per person you get to ride up to about 13,000 ft and take in incredible views of the city. You have the option to hike up to some swings, multiple viewpoints, and even all the way up...More
Definitely a must when you are in Quito. I would however caution all travellers coming from low altitude cities as the hike starts at around 4000m. Even for athletic people the hike is quite exhausting - although worth it! You can also simply go up...More

I absolutely loved this place even though we got sick because I arrived directly from Guayaquil to the Teleferico. I think that the change of weather got me and the family sick but it was an amazing experience! The views were breath taking!!!
The ride up to the top of the mountain took about 20 minutes on the teleferica. It was very windy and cold at the top. The views were beautiful. If you like hiking they have a trail that you can walk thats goes across the...More

Yes, you can camp there. There is no cost. There is also a refuge cabin near the top of the Guagua Pichincha which is near the crater and is an active volcano. You can see the crater usually early in the morning before the fog and clouds come in.
The cabin does have beds and some mattresses. There is also water. Bring a blanket and some matches if you want to boil water for some tea or coca leaves to help with altitude sickness. I do believe there is a small cost for spending the night if the park guide is there. I don't think it is more than 10 dollars.
