Baños and Riobamba image

On the northern edge of the Sangay National Park and at the base of Tungurahua volcano is the scruffy pilgrimage town of Baños, popular as a tourist destination for its hydrothermal springs as well as its many adventure activities giving it the reputation as 'the adventure capital of Ecuador'.

Riobamba is a lively and attractive city sitting on the Panamericana 52km south of Ambato. Most famously, it is the start of the stunning train journey passing the famous ‘Devil’s Nose’ switchback below Alausí village.
