Driving the road to Corazon Volcano is not a piece of cake

Volcan Corazon is an ancient and extinct volcano located in the Pichincha province of Ecuador. A gravel road leads halfway up the mountain, ending at 4.306m (14,127ft) above the sea level. It's one of the highest roads of the country.

Volcan Corazon

Located in the western slopes of the Andes, about 30 km southwest of Quito, the road is totally unpaved. It is very rough and is a slow drive. 4x4 vehicles with high clearance only. The area is usually covered in the rainy season with an attractive snow blanket. The drive starts from Machachi. The weather in the area is very unpredictable and you must be prepared with warm clothing.
