All landscapes in Ecuador are awesome. If you are looking for a natural gettaway, and to be surrounded by nature, but not too far from the city, this is the way to go. Perfect for children, a lot of room to run and play safely. IS REALLY COLD so take a winter coat and FOOD. Of course, there is no stores.

The Pasochoa is a park nobody will ever forget. You feel the Andes soooo close to you ¡ the air is clean, fresh, ; you can see many different birds, on a clear day you will see the snow caped mountain : the Antisana.

This is an interesting side trip to strech your legs and see some of the few remaining high-mountain forests in the inter-andean valley. Great views of the valley and the caldera of this ancient volcano. Safe trails for all ages.

I have to confess that I have visited this Reserve several times, and the main reason is that you always discover new things when you go there. I went with my family last time and walked the 8 hours 'sendero'. Unfortunately, we didn't have our camera. It is a shame as we saw fantastic species of birds and flowers I've never seen before in my life. I recommended for people who want to escape from the noisy city.

Pasachoa is not easily accessed by bus but is easy by car. Once there, they offer some basic exhibits near the trailheads and several trails through the lush setting. The longest trail extends above the treeline to the summit of Pasachoa. It is an all day hike with significant elevation gain. This is an excellent place to acclimate for climbers.
