The Andean Highlands in Ecuador

One of the most visited area of Ecuador is the Andes, - a breath taking, multi-hued mountain paradise jam-packed with cultural and natural diversity that would keep visitors coming back.

If you want to do the scenic trip, be sure to hop aboard the "Train of the Middle of the World". If you love urban adventures and mountain thrills, is is your place.

You'll get to see Quito's panoramic view - the world's first city to be declared a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. Quito is an ideal place for hiking, mountain climbing, biking, rafting and kayaking.

In the southern part is another colonial city called Cuenca, - another UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site with its charming cobblestone streets and white washed red-tiled buildings, stately plazas and grand old churches.
