How to get
From Quito to the Altar, take the Pan-American race south to Riobamba.
You cross the city in an easterly direction, where you take the E490 road in the direction of Penipe and then in Cujibies towards the southeast.
After about 20 km from Riobamba you will arrive at the foot of El Altar. The last section of the road is bad.
The final access can be made by both the left and right side of the ravine that is born in the Yellow Lagoon.
