How to Getting ?

From Terminal de Buses Quitumbe (south of Quito) or Trebol  take one of the several buses that leave to Machachi. There are only two bus companies that offer their service to Machachi, Transportes Mejia (green) and Carlos Brito (purple).

Also you can fine the bus in Trebol this is near the Mariscal (tourist Place in Quito) You'll need to get off the bus at Mercado Central de Machachi.


Once in Machachi, take another bus to the town of El Chaupi (blue-and-white buses signed “El Chaupi”;). They leave every 30 minutes from the Market’s corner. The best spot to catch a ride is at “Supermercados TIA”.

The statue of a woman milking a cow will let you know that you've arrived to El Chaupi (13 Km-bus-ride on a cobbled road, well actually half of it has been paved). In Chaupi we have our oficce informatión this is close to the central park of CHaupi. You can easily see our sign . From El Chaupi continue on a very well signed road towards the Illinizas parking lot at 3,900 m. (La Virgen, there's a small shrine to the virgin) which is about 9 km away.
