Avenue of the Volcanoes & Central Highlands

Introduction

To the south of Quito in the Central Highlands lies the ‘Avenue of Volcanoes'.

Here an impressive spine of towering peaks lining the route south has created some of the best mountains in Ecuador.

The area attracts plenty of climbers and trekkers, but is equally loved by those in search of colonial towns, teeming markets and charming haciendas.
