  Cerro Panecillo
by filipdebont

Panecillo Hill: Panecillo means little bread, referring to its size and shape. From here you have splendid view over Quito.

Via stairs and paths from the Garcia Moreno and the Ambato, you can hike to the top of this hill. But it is not safe to do this, as on this trail many tourists have been robbed in the past.

So it is better to take a taxi to the top. It will cost you 3 US $, but that is a much safer way to reach the top.

Directions: small hill in the center of the city
