Stop At: La Cordillera de los Llanganates, Ambato 856, Baños de Agua Santa, Ecuador
The Llanganates or Llanganati which means "beautiful hill", as they were known by the ancient inhabitants of the Sierra, were used as sacred sites by the indigenous people of the Rumiñahui region, the inhabitants of Píllaro, and after the Inca occupation they became a center very important ceremonial or "huaca" (Uzcátegui 1992 cit. by Vásquez and Larrea 2000). The Incas used the Llanganates as a mining area, interned to extract gold from the mountains and created a road infrastructure whose traces can still be seen today (Anhalzer 1998 by Vásquez and Larrea 2000).
The archaeological evidence found in the area suggests that in the past the park was inhabited by the same human groups that inhabited most of the mountainous area during the Kingdom of Quito. The cacicazgos of Tacunga, Mulliambato and Píllaro exercised in their time influence on these groups, that were characterized by their active commerce to regional level.
