Quito is the second highest capital city in the world (La Paz being the highest administrative capital city). To view the city from its highest point, take the teleferico from the west side of the city, close to the Pichicha Volcano (How to reach: take a cab to teleferico from main square for < 10$ – share it with other tourists). This is one of the highest gondolas in the world, rising up to 12000 ft ASL. So, this is the height at which some planes fly. And here I was going up to the same height in a gondola. The views are absolutely beautiful. You could alternatively hike up if you reach there early in the morning. There have been instances of robberies at the hiking trail. Be careful and try to hike up in a group. I think the last gondola leaves around 4:30-5.
