information about ecuador  Quito - Ecuador, Pichincha

Quito's newest attraction - and a mind-boggling one at that - is the telefériQo, a multimillion dollar sky tram that takes passengers on a hair-raising 2.5km ride up the flanks of Volcán Pichincha to the top of Cruz Loma. Once you're at the top (a mere 4100m), you can hike to the summit of Rucu Pichincha (4680m), an approximately three-hour hike for fit walkers.
To get here, either take a taxi or take one of the telefériQo shuttles which depart about every 30 minutes from the Trole's Estación Norte stop, the Río Coca stop of the Ecovía line and Plaza La Marín parking area in the old town.
On weekends the wait can last up to four hours; either pay the around US$7 express-line fee or (even better) come on a weekday. Also try to visit in the morning, when the views are best.
