Cerro Atacazo

Cerro Atacazo

Cerro Atacazo is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.155m (13,631ft) above the sea level located in the Western Cordillera, southwest of Quito, Ecuador.

The road to the summit is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 vehicle required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. There are several antennas at the summit. Expect a trail pretty steep. Thunderstorm activity can quickly change unpaved roads to four-wheel-drive condition or make them impassable. The views of Quito are amazing.
