Lonely Planet review

For spectacular views over Quito’s mountainous landscape, hop aboard the telefériQo , a multimillion-dollar sky tram that takes passengers on a 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. Don’t attempt the hike to Rucu Pichincha until you’ve acclimatized in Quito for a couple days.
