One of Quito’s many attractions is the Teleferiqo, a cable car system that carries visitors up a mountain to great views over the city. My friend Cristina thought it would be fun to HIKE up the Teleferiqo hill rather than taking the lazy way up.
So on Easter Sunday we spent the morning walking from Quito (about 9,350 feet) up to the viewing platform (13,450 feet). It took a few hours and was a great way to spend Easter. We had beautiful weather and enjoyed spectacular views of the Andean valley all along the way. Not exactly a Sunday stroll, but definitely awesome.
