To acclimatize our body before climbing higher mountains, this is the best option, an 8-hour round trip hike from the crater of the Pichincha volcano. We can start our walk early even before cable car 'TELEFERICO ' opens its doors since we take the old route to go up by vehicle. One hours driving and enjoying amazing views of the city. We will see vegetation that grows so high. Waiting to see wildlife but I am sure we will watch birds. On the way back we can go down by cable car where we will take the vehicle to return to the hotel.
