Tungurahua, Banos

(4.6/5 based on 320 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.

  • It is a place as necessary, nevertheless, there not enough choice and it's a cold. The people are friendly and the prices are a little high.

  • This area has perfect weather. The volcano peak was cloud covered the 2 days we were there but the area has many activities.  more »
  • Yes well not could go because is expected that between in eruption (which not made while were there, yes sounds wrong, but wanted to see it in eruption) live the preparation of baths for a possible emergency volcanic. We had a threat, but it was only smoke that looked out of the volcano. The panoramic view of the volcano that gives the city is equally beautiful. Bathroom is a place that I fell in love with in all sense and in each thing of the people.
