Tungurahua, Banos

4.6
#3 of 8 in Parks in Banos
Admire the grand shape and snowy cap of Tungurahua, one of South America's most active volcanoes. Take a hike on one of many routes intersecting the surrounding area. Though access to the volcano itself is understandably restricted due to its frequent activity, the surrounding farmland and foothills offer great views of the erupting giant. At 5,023 m (16,480 ft) tall, the volcano cuts an imposing figure over the landscape and, set against the sky or jutting out from the land below, photographs well. Our Banos trip itinerary planning website makes visiting Tungurahua and other Banos attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • The area is spectacular, on one side and on the other you see the jungles of two national parks and, in addition, we were lucky to be able to see the volcano without a single cloud with unique weather conditions. It goes up by road almost to its base. Nearby is the Tree House. It is worth the visit if the weather is good.
