  • Rucu Pichincha is one of the volcanoes in Quito. It is worth 1 day full tour for those who are willing to reach their summit. Start by taking the cable car that takes about 10 minutes to arrive. Leaving from the left you will see the trail, well signaled. The trail has a small detour that passes through the swing, it's worth it. You will see in several places of the way a map of the trail, where you are the lack and the level of complexity. It takes about 4-5 hours to arrive and 2-3 hours to get back. The last stretch is quite challenging, almost a climb. My suggestion is to go without haste, stopping on the way to feed and rest. It's worth it! You feel in the clouds!
