Its highest point in the snow is 5,755m (18,881ft), the lower point between 3,100m to 4,700 meters above sea level, which is the so-called Condor mirador viewpoint. From there, you can view the Antisana, Cotopaxi and a part of the volcano Cayambe, depending on the weather.

    If it's cloudy you can't really see anything. The hike was nice, shorter than I thought it would be. The bike ride was exhilarating. A little scary. Also the bikes were in a little bit of rough condition, which made it rather difficult when it came time to go uphill.
