Four hours from Quito, you will find the largest and most majestic; declared, not long ago, as the Highest Mountain in the World counted from the center of the earth because it is in the widening and therefore closer to the sun.
For the passionate ones in climbing to the summit, this is one of the options because with a vehicle we can reach up to 4800 meters above sea level, where the first refuge is located.
Anyone with a normal heart rate will be able to walk to the lagoon and the second refuge. To climb higher altitudes you must hire specialized guides with specific equipment. In any case, the landscape, being able to observe the ´vicuñas´ in their wild state is priceless, not far from the refuge you can also see birds and the Andean wolf.
You have to do, feel and live an experience like this!
