Guagua Pichincha

Driving about one hour west from Quito the Andean village of Lloa (3500m), which is situated in the basin southwest of Quito, will be the starting point for a trip into the Andean mountains. We start our biking journey near the top of still - very active Guagua Pichincha Volcano. The views are spectacular. Look east on a clear day and you’ll see the sprawling metropolis of Quito back- dropped by numerous snow- capped volcanoes. Look towards each of the other three compass points and you will de awed by great expenses of paramo (thundra like vegetation). We will trek to the edge of the crater to peer over its rim and into the throbbing heart of this rumbling, belching sulphuric beast, after which, we mount our bikes and race downwards to Lloa on an abandoned dirt road. At Lloa we head west into the cloud forest, where the verdant forest awaits you. Packed lunch en - route. By late afternoon we return to Quito.
