I came here with the intention of walking most of the way to the volcano but be warned this isnt a beginner hike. There are many steep, eroded sections and it is at high altitude (4000m+). I went as far as the Piramide Caida before...More
The travel worth the price. The cable car looks safe. You reach almost 4000 metres so the view is fantastic. You can trek to the top of the mountain but you need to go up very early in the morning otherwise you'll have not time...More
Even on a cloudy day, this is a fun place to visit. Only $8.50 round trip for tourists, this 10-15 minute cable ride up the mountain offers spectacular views of Quito. If I had a mountain bike, I would have made the trek back down...More
Say yes this activity!! We took a cab from old town after got done touring for 8 US dollars. The cost to get in is around $8 as well, but worth every penny. I would suggest taking your time with this activity. We spent about...More
High altitude in 15 minutes. A great way to see the impressive size of Quito's footprint and of the surrounding mountains and volcanoes. Truly worth the trip. Adventurers can continue their trek by climbing the Rucu Pichincha trail. An adventure for all levels.

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.
