This is a great experience whether you're interested in high views of Quito or plants of the paramo (high grasslands above the treeline). It can be quite cool and windy so bring a jacket and rain gear in case of sprinkles. The restaurant is ok and it does cost 50 cents to use the bano, so be prepared for that. Ecological changes in vegetation from normal-height trees to eucalyptus and pines, to flowering shrubs with yellow and red flowers, to grasses and flowering herbs will be of interest to many.

This is a great place to go for one of the best views in the city. Go in the morning if it is sunny to avoid the lines and the rain. It's under $10 to go to the top but worth it for the views. You can walk around to three different viewing points quickly and take some pictures within 30 to 45 minutes. There is also an old amusement park with a 1/2 dozen rides if you have kids. The rides are nothing special. It is all about the view.

I highly recommend visiting the teleferiqo!
It is very close to old town and reachable by bus, just ask the locals and the bus will drop you off across the street from where the free shuttle to take you up hill.
Entrance is $8.50 for foreigners and it takes 18mins of glorious views of Quito to get all the way up.
There is a nice trail along, the whole hike takes 5hours but with an hour walk you get to see amazing views of you are not up for the whole thing! Don’t be disappointed if when you get up is completely foggy, start the walk and hopefully it will soon clear enough for better visibility!
Enjoy!

One of the things that must do here! Very beautiful view of the city! If the sky is clean, you can see the Volcanos! It costs US$8.5 for round trip. Keep the ticket for return.
