Sangay National Park Attractions

Endangered animal species like spectacled bears and mountain tapirs and many others live in Sangay while the landscape consists of several mountains and volcanoes, making it a great hiking destination. For instance, you can take a trail from Candelaria village to the crater of El Altar volcano. The entrance fee for the visit of the site is $10 but this depends on whether your hiking routes will bypass the ranger stations as it sometimes happens. In that case, no entrance fee is collected.
