What you need to know before traveling to Pichincha

Pichincha is a region of Ecuador that is home to the nation’s capital and second largest city- Quito. The name has derived from the presence of a volcano within the area that bears the same name. Volcan Pichincha has twin peaks and these are named Ruco and Guagua. Quito city was originally an Inca settlement, but unfortunately when the Spanish Conquistadors moved in to the region, traces of this past were lost. Quito is built on the foothills of one of these huge Andean twin mountains, which rises to over 4,600m above sea level. Pichincha is dissected by the vast Andes mountain range that runs right through it and the area offers rewarding views of outstanding natural beauty.
