Trek through Pululahua, a collapsed volcanic crater full of lush and dense native plant life. The crater reaches a pinnacle of 3,356 m (11,011 ft), giving you far reaching views from every angle. Observe over 2,000 species of plants and a huge selection of birds, mammals, and insects. Choose a different way to explore by going on horseback or mountain biking. Pick up some artisan crafts and food from the local vendors or eat at a restaurant. Stay overnight and choose from hostels or specially designated camping spots.

  • The title sums it up perfectly, 5 star doesn't do justice, a breathtaking view, an almost indescribable landscape. Highly recommended to get up to down.

  • The route to the crater is a bit demanding but worth completely do so, and the view from above is beautiful also. There is a place now within the crater called the goat Hill is a mountain that I recommend climb, the view from the top is unique!

  • A nice look, with lots of green and a community that lives in the crater today, for a few moments and even difficult to believe we're in the crater of a volcano. Anyway, pretty much, is worth a visit combining the walk with the Mitad del Mundo and, of course, only if the weather is clear, otherwise you will not see anything.
