  • Who would like to see the land area of a formerly active volcano is right here. Admission to the NP is free, for the NP wants to administrative data to the person as well as nationality. Mitad del Mundo possible travel by public transport (blue bus) to stop PULULAHUA. The subsequent 1.2 km are then by foot to master hitch-hiking or who has luck with the taxi. On foot you can take an abbreviation before the first big left turn, then you reach the entrance of the NP at the horse stables. At the edge of the crater, we got no feet on the ground. Not only therefore, also because of the alleged bird diversity we have down the road (approx. 280hm) ventured. At the one or the other point, there was a musical companion, but lacked the ability to photograph them. The route uphill was the PULULAHUA guesthouse thanks to falling mist in 45 minutes. So anyone who would like to spend more time in the crater - it will be worth - should definitely visit this place in the early morning and then go to the equator. Travel costs: Quito - Mitad del Mundo, and PULULAHUA (stop) with the bus about 90 minutes the same applies to $0.40 per person, duration back Mitad del Mundo - PULULAHUA approx. $5 for ranging and way back, waiting for drivers if you want to just take a look into the crater. At the parking lot, enough taxis for the trip wait if one is not afraid of the way into the crater. A visit to the Museo Templo del Sol you can connect with this trip.

  • The feeling of insignificance that one feels to peer into the crater of the volcano, is incomparable...

  • A wonderful place, if you like to walk this place is perfect. It is necessary to bring sunscreen and comfortable clothes. The hike is long, but from the viewpoint as from the crater the view is beautiful!
