We had a day in Quito so decided to use the cable car up to the top of Volcano Pichincha. It was a $5 taxi ride from the city centre and the cable cars ran smoothly, with the queue moving quickly. Amazing views all the...More
$8 will get a 20 minute cable car ride up to around 15000 feet ASL looking over Quito.
The views are breathtaking (literally) - the air is quite thin up there so don’t be surprised if walking etc makes you breathless.
There are a couple...More
If you have the chance to go up on this cable car, GO! The view of the city is breathtaking. Take a coat and drink plenty of water before hand. Expect to wait in line to go back to the bottom. Explore the top. Find...More
The Teleferico is a hit and miss affair, sometimes too cloudy to see much - and it's high! Most of our party was affected by altitude sickness to a greater or lesser degree, but we were very glad to have made it up to have...More
I had not planned on riding the gondola but since we were stranded in Quito for a couple of days decided to go. We used uber one way and a taxi back, from the airport area the cost was about $30 one way. View is...More
You need to pick the right day to go up the Teleferico in Quito. A clear day is a must or you will find it a waste of time and money. It is also cold at the saddle and if you are planning the summit...More
We really enjoyed our trip up the mountain and the views from up top. There are some paths you can wander on and even a swing. We took a taxi from old town and had no problem finding one to return. Best to go in...More
Four of decided to visit the cable car ride at Teleferico in Quito. It’s located approximately 15 mins from our hotel, the Marriott. The ride up in the enclosed car was smooth and quiet. When we reached the top there several areas to view the...More
Quito is really interesting in that it is a long, narrow city build over many hills. To get an idea of the geography, an aerial view from the cable car is ideal. We got a taxi to the base station and there was hardly any...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... 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.
