Central Andes

Central Andes

Wonderful scenery is common-place almost everywhere you travel in the Andes, but the central Andes offer some of the most impressive scenery in the country.
In this part of Ecuador, the Andes are at their most volcanic, with over fifty peaks pushing upwards from the colliding tectonic plates below them.
Alexander von Humboldt described the route south from Quito to Riobamba as the 'Avenue of the Volcanoes', with the peaks of the twin sierras arrayed on either side.
