Bring lots of water and snacks! Also, it can be very cold and windy when you reach the top so a sweater or jacket and even a hat would be good to bring with you. If you haven’t spent much time in Quito yet, take it slow or the altitude will really hit you. When you reach the summit, the view is spectacular! Definitely well worth the trek!
