Teleferiqo Warning Sign: Don’t Run – You’ll Die! (Quito Ecuador)

Posted in: Ecuador Travel

While atop El TelefériQo in Quito, I saw this sign. Even if you don’t know Spanish, you can probably tell what this means. Essentially, it says:

4,100 meters altitude – Don’t run or You’ll Die.

But actually it just says: Warning. 4,100 meters altitude. Slow. No Running. As if, if you do fall, you’ll free fall for the full 4,100 meters, right to sea level.

    Well in fact, that sign is cause at 4100 mts the air is so low in Oxigen that if you run you could get agitated in a short period of time, itll be hard for you to breath and more imortantly you could faint for low oxygen, not cause you could fall
