Hiking from Rucu Pichincha to Guagua Pichincha

The Pichincha massif is complex and consists of two peaks: the Rucu and Guagua Pichincha, translated from Quichua language in "old" and "child".

Overlooking the city of Quito, it offers a unique view of the Avenue of the Volcanoes.

The "Guagua" Pichincha (4780 m), which is our goal that day, is an active volcano located just 10 km west of Quito.
It is the highest of the two peaks of this mountain range, the Rucu Pichincha only rises to 4627 meters.
