Encapsulating the wonders and nature in equal measure, the highlands of the world’s longest above-ground mountain range are the most popular regions of Ecuador. From some of the tallest active volcanoes on Earth to ancient ruins, following the spine of the Andes through Ecuador will take you to its most iconic sights, like the Ingapirca ruins and markets of Otavalo. Running through much of the country’s beautiful landscape, both the man-made and natural wonders of Ecuador lie just within reach.
These are usually the driest months in Ecuador, which makes any outdoor activities considerably easier. With clear blue skies a common sight during this time of year as well, any hiking trips along the mountainside will provide excellent photo opportunities.
