This particular place of our Andes has a unique micro-climate. Usually, it is clear before noon and at mid day you see the mist that comes from the cloud forest located a bit towards west. This incredible caldera, a little over 3 km in diameters in its widest side, has two main entrances and through the one, still used by mules, horses and donkies, you can hike all the way down, in about half an hour.
It is great to meet the locals that actually live on the cladera layer of this still active (although dormant) volcano, potentially dangerous for anyone too close to it. Most of all, you can enjoy the incredible flora that you find on its slopes. It is only 45 minutes away from the oldtown in Quito; it all depends on how heavy is the traffic on the day you select to go in there. This is a great opportunity for anyone to have a first good and impressive encourner with the Ecuadorian Andes. We will be happy to organize a great adventure or holiday for you.
