Guagua Pichincha Volcano


Pichincha is a volcano in the South American country of Ecuador.  Still active, Pinchincha is one of the volcanoes which surrounds the capital city of Quito.  The stratovolcano has two peaks: Guagua Pichincha and Ruku Pichincha. What you'll see here in this drone video is Guagua Pichincha, which translates roughly too "small" or "baby".  It's actually the taller of the two peaks though, with a maximum elevation of almost 4.8k meters above sea level (around 15.7k ft.) - roughly 100 meters (300 ft.) taller than its sister peak.
