Bus transportation is generally fine. Avoid night buses. If you are carrying luggage, put your large bags in the undercarriage compartment and keep valuables on you at all times (never put a bag on the floor).
I suggest buying tickets in advance to take the train to Devil's Nose. The view is impressive for its beautiful landscapes that can be observed in this section.
Thank you for the advice!
Once you are in Alausi traveling to Banos is only about 3.5 hours away. You could either take a private driver for that part or you could make a stop in Riobamba and then from the Terminal Oriental you can take a bus straight to Banos which is an approx 1h45. Again this can be done before or after Alausi but I think it would be nice to head to Alausi first and then to Banos.
which company did you boook bus tickets with?
thanks in advance
You don't need to book busses. They travel frequently.
