Tour to Guagua and Ruco Pichincha

This adventure begins early, from the shelter of Guagua Pichincha, where we will head for its summit. The way will be accompanied by the sulfur vents of this active volcano. 

If you think you are up for adventure you that will challenge you we recommend that you make a comprehensive call and summit all three mountains in this range. 

List of attractions: Lloa, Civil Defense Shelter, Guagua Pichincha, Padre Encantado Ruco Pichincha, Teleférico (cable car) 

Duration of Tour: Full Day

After this summit will descend and take course towards the Padre Encantado, an intermediate summit in the Pichincha chain. Legend has it that the name comes from a priest and his companions that were sent on a mission to the parish of San José de Minas. They disappeared mysteriously in the mountains. No traces were left except for their campsite and where they lit the fire. Since that day the site, near the top of the mountain, has been called “Padre Ecantando”.

After “Padre Encantado” and a demanding hike, we will arrive at Ruco Pichincha, the lowest of the Pichinchas. From its summit we will be able to gaze upon Quito in all of its grandeur. 

From this summit, everything else is downhill towards the Teleferico (cable car) that will take us down to a parking area where our transport will be waiting. 

During this challenging trek you be accompanied by a certified and knowledgeable guide who will make this trip something you will never forget.
