Mindo, Ecuador

Teleferico

One of the best places to get a view of Quito's mountainous landscape is at the top of the Teleferico.  It's a sky tram up the side of Pinchincha.  The 2.5km ride takes 10 minutes before you arrive at the top of Cruz Loma.  The total height is 4100m, almost 13,500ft.  From the top you can hike to the summit of Rucu Pinchincha (4680m) which is a 4km (5hr) round trip.

Dad and I had a little lunch at one of the restaurants after walking around.  The morning we went it was little cloudy so you couldn't see all the mountain tops, but it was breathtaking nevertheless.
