Antisana ecological reserve is home to a wide variety of life zones due to being incorporated in the high basin of the river Napo. It is considered one of the ten “hot spots” of the world in point of wildlife variety. The reserve lies between the provinces of Pichincha and Napo. With its forests and the volcano wAntisana, it is a privileged place for the observation of the Andean Condor. Its highest point is the snowcapped volcano summit with 5755m. The lower points in the whole reserve are between 3100m and 4700 m above sea level. At the top of the “Milacoma” (4.150msnm) hill we reach the so-called Condor viewpoint. From here the Antisana, Cotopaxi, and a part of the volcano Cayambe (depending on climate) can be seen.
