Tungurahua, Banos

(4.6/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Admire the grand shape and snowy cap of Tungurahua, one of South America's most active volcanoes. Take a hike on one of many routes intersecting the surrounding area. Though access to the volcano itself is understandably restricted due to its frequent activity, the surrounding farmland and foothills offer great views of the erupting giant. At 5,023 m (16,480 ft) tall, the volcano cuts an imposing figure over the landscape and, set against the sky or jutting out from the land below, photographs well.
