Fodor's Review

Parque Pasochoa, a protected area administered by the Quito-based Fundación Natura, covers 988 acres of high Andean forest. More than 100 species of birds and a variety of butterflies have been identified in the area. Walking trails include short loops and all-day hikes, with the trek to the 13,800-foot summit of Volcán Pasochoa the most strenuous. Camping is permitted in designated areas with water spigots and latrines.
