High in its perch amidst the snow-tipped peaks of the Ecuadorian Andes, Riobamba welcomes visitors to a charming Spanish core of preserved churches and 18th century stone architecture. The town itself is a hubbub of action from Monday to Saturday, boasting a wealth of farmer’s markets and artisan bazaars to explore, traditional craft boutiques on Pinchincha Street, and an unexpectedly lively nightlife scene centred on the roads around El Parque Infantil.
Perhaps the most fascinating sight here is the gigantic, glacial silhouette of Chimborazo, the tallest summit in all of Ecuador, and its volcanic brothers on the horizon. Any travellers looking to explore those altitudinous reaches should ask their Riobamba tour guide for tips on the best hiking routes that abound amidst the Sangay National Park and the mountainous ridges surrounding town. Alternatively, breathtaking views of the Andean slopes can be had on the Nariz del Diablo train ride, a hair-pinning, hair-raising excursion, and an engineering marvel.
