A view of Quito from Pichincha Volcano by way of TeleferiQo Cable Car. Altitude 4,100m (13,450 ft.) 
Watch Video

Quito, officially San Francisco de Quito, is the capitol of Ecuador and one of the highest capital cities in the world at 9,350 ft. According to The Guinness Book of World Records, the highest town in the world is Wenzhuan at 16,730 feet above sea level, which was founded in 1955 on the Qinghai-Tibet road north of the Tangla mountain range. Quito is a great way to start your visit. I found the Ecuadorian people to be beautiful, generous and very kind. Ecuador is Spanish for equator and Quito is only 15 miles south of the equator, Mitad del Mundo is Spanish for Middle of the World. Quito Population was 1,504,991 in 2005,   quito.gov
