Considered one of Ecuador’s most active volcanoes, this strato-volcano (a volcano that almost constantly emits gas and vapor) towers more than three kilometers above its northern base with a crater measuring more than 400 meters in diameter.

THis is a beautiful volcano in Ecuador near the town of Banos. There is a road leading up the mountain away from Banos going toward Palate where you can find a swing. The view from the swing in breathtaking of the Tungurahua volcano and valley.

We got the best view of the volcano when we left Banos to go to Riobamba. It is active, and is beautiful sight, as are most of the Volcanos in Ecuador

It is the most beautiful green and fertile area within a mountainous location. Don't worry about the active volcano scares as it's well worth the visit.

Basically all of central Ecuador is gorgeous. The view from up here are amazing. We took a bus up to the tree house but there were several people hiking all the way up there. Definitely go up there and see the view!

Great view from outside of town. You can sometimes see ashes coming from the volcano. Evacuation plans are in place.

I love volcanoes and this one is impressive! Not easy to see the top, because of local changing weather, but we got lucky! A view to a kill!
