Touch the Sky: Hiking Pichincha

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Pichincha is a volcano that sits conveniently at the edge of Quito. A teleferico lets you ride halfway up in comfort — after that, the hiking gets progressively more difficult. The views are absolutely stunning, though, and well worth the effort!

Just take a taxi to the teleferico. Bring warm gear if you want to hike — including gloves, hat, and fleece. It gets quite chilly. The only other things you’ll need are snacks, plenty of water, and a camera.

I'm Lauren, the founder of Indie Travel Guru. I'm living proof that a life of travel and adventure is available to anyone who wants it. At 40, I was a single mom with no passport, a poverty-level income, and big dreams. At 48, I started traveling the world with everything I own in a backpack. That was in 2013, and I'm still going strong!
