Take a trip to the Antisana National Park for hiking and biking through the beautiful landscape southeast of Quito, between the provinces of Pichincha and Napo. Travel through forests and stop at the outskirts of the Pichincha volcano, a great place to observe the Andean Condor. Its highest point in the snow is 5,755m (18,881ft), the lower point between 3,100m to 4,700 meters above sea level, which is the so-called Condor mirador viewpoint. From there, you can view the Antisana, Cotopaxi and a part of the volcano Cayambe, depending on the weather.
