El Teleferico

We finally had a clear day so I went up to Teleferico or the cable car.

At the top the altitude offered a great view of Quito.

The mountain is an exstinct volcano, and if you do the 5hr hike to the top, you can see the crater.

Unfortunately the cable car topped out 13,000ft, and i was pressed for time so after the first kilometre i stopped and enjoyed the view.

If one wanted they had horses for rent as well.

Then after the hike down, I went and found some food.

Ps: Though it might seem like a good idea at the time, one may want to reconsider walking down into the crater of a vulcano….at night…alone.
