Baños is a town on the edge of the Ecuadorian jungle. Arriving from the Andes (totally deserted) we saw how quickly the landscape changes. Beyond is the Ecuadorian jungle. Growing in the tropical climate is cultivated Passion Fruit. Baños is located in a valley with waterfalls and hot springs. Set beside the Tungurahua volcano over 5,000 high (the volcano is active). It has a spa (a little crowded) and many businesses running outdoor activities (quads, horseback riding, hiking, rafting ...). It is a good place to spend a couple of days before entering the jungle.
The Mantle of the Bride is a gorgeous waterfall, which was just a drop of water not long ago, and now it's about 40 meters high. The falls and the river Pastaza are on the famous route of waterfalls of baths. You'll have a great time walking around. You can even go down to the drop in tarabita and cross the waterfall by a suspension bridge and then go swimming. Actually anything will be a nice experience or climb to the top and bottom by cable car (good view), and walk up and enjoy river also splendid water and vegetation and beautiful butterflies to hunt with your camera, great place to get back to nature.
This waterfall is the first stop on the famous route of the waterfalls and baths and it's certainly the one that virtually every tourist has skipped and can only picture it in their minds as they look up from the road as it is very near the dam of the Pastaza River and there are many buildings nearby, which makes the nature eager to see the watefall. It falls for 40 meters, I wouldn't say that this site isn't worth seeing, but people should at least learn a little more about this area that is much difference there is between about 40m and 150m, otherwise if you decide to go down and take a bath and photograph it from below, certainly feels that enjoys a good legacy of nature.
Baños is a small town in central Ecuador, halfway between the Andes and the rainforest. The thermal waters, which are very hot, are reputed to be miraculous. Many people make the pilgrimage to the baths to heal disease and disabilities. All the miracles attributed to the city of Baños de Aguas Santas are thanked for by the parishioners in their small church. Built in colonial style, the church is in the town's centre, surrounded by beautiful mountains, waterfalls and the Tungurahua volcano, which peaks at over 5000 meters. You can try the hot springs at in various places throughout the village. Now the town is more oriented to foreign tourism, and it offers extreme sports like river rafting or jungle mountain biking, but a visit to the church is very interesting to see the beliefs surrounding the waters of the town. Acknowledging plaques on the walls have been written with such devotion and simplicity that they are very exciting.
Along the route of the waterfalls to the thermal baths, there is a wonderful waterfall on the Machay river, which is about 40 metres high. There are many along the river, but this one has the river's name and it's impressive to watch it flow from the top to the bottom and empty into into the river Pastaza in about an hour. If you are looking for the baths, then you shouldn't miss this one because there are baths all around it. In any of the lakes that form, there are waterfalls and spillovers between rocks. I don't have to mention that you can take some pretty pictures, so that you can tell all your friends that you saw a wonderful place and that they shouldn't miss it.
