ECUADOR

Ecuador is a land of mega biodiversity, blessed by the poetic paradox of snow-capped peaks amid the Tropics. Located on the equinoctial line, it harbors the Andean Range, Pacific Ocean and Amazon Basin, all within a country the size of Great Britain or the state of Nevada. 

Its four regions give rise to a natural and climatic diversity which can be enjoyed just hours from Quito. Descend from a city in the sky, warmed by the powerful Andean sun, down through the refreshing mist, you cross the equator into another world. 

The western slopes of the Andes, a few hours' away, are enveloped in richly-forested hills brimming with endemic species. Ecuador is considered one of the seventeen most bio diverse countries on the planet, with the highest density of species per square kilometer in the world. In the bountiful playground, garden of lush vegetation, towering trees muffled in around 1,840 varieties of birds fly freely through the intense blue sky, while dotting the deep green forests, close to 4,500 species of butterfly flit. 

From Quito's pumping veins, be transported to the beauty waterfalls cascading down from the icy peaks. Experience the enchantment of crossing into a secret mosses and veiled in vines, mists of a million water droplets of the enchanting forest, threaded with waxing and waning with the whims of the sun: Ecuador's cloud forest domain.
