The Andes – 2 parallel mountain ranges with an intermediate plateau – crosses the country from North to South. Ten mountains reach above the snow line, the Chimborazo even up to 6300 meters. The Cotopaxi – an hour’s drive from Quito – is the highest active volcano in the world. On the mountain slopes of the Andes, the highland Indians have survived from agriculture and artesanacy for thousands of years. In the valleys we come across waterfalls, thermal baths, beautiful Indian markets and old haciendas.
