Your Travel Experience with Galapagos PRO
Beautiful hiking from Baños
Galapagos PRO recommendation: A certain extra for your Ecuador experience.
Moderate trails - but with gradients - are the ways to Mirador La Cruz Bellavista above the village (45 min), the mountain village of Runtún (2 hours) and on the other side of the river on the Loma Chontilla (2 hours) with a magnificent view of the Tungurahua. Behind Puente San Francisco, 6 km above Baños, lies the Refugio and the volcano observation point Mirador Ojos del Volcán (2 hours). With a coffee in your hand you can even feel the Tungurahua here! Further down the Rio Pastaza from the Represa de Agoyán (dam) on the right side is a hiking trail through lush natural and cultural landscape past magnificent waterfalls and streams passimg the farming communities El Arroyo, Chinchín, San Pedro to Rio Verde. Cable cars and suspension bridges allow you to return to the other shore at several points along the way, thus returning to the road which has bus traffic.
The Tungurahua is not mountable due to volcanic activity.
Note: This is a recommended excursion that is not included in the tour price and is not accompanied by a guide.
