No sooner has it been inaugurated that it was already a landmark of the Ecuadorian landscape. Located on the easternmost side of the city, on the slope of the Pichincha volcano, the TelefériQo (with a capital Q, as in “Quito”) has been in service since 2005. As the day goes on, the queue gets longer and longer in front of the egg-shaped cabins. Once inside, you will rise up above the city for an 18-minute ride. Cruz de Loma is your destination, showcasing a 180° panorama of Quito. It is recommended to go early in the morning, to avoid massive crowds and ensure incredible views. On a clear day, you may even see a few volcanos in the distance, including Cotopaxi, Antisana and Cayambe, among the highest in Ecuador, easily identifiable to their snowy peaks. This breathtaking landscape is also to be taken literary: you will then be standing 4,050 metres high!
