Scenically, the Uritorco presents great attractions. To begin, it stands as a mass of steep slopes between the other mountains. During the evenings of days clear, precisely at the moment of sunset sun, much of the slopes takes a bright golden color.

The viewpoint is located on the most common level of clouds, but these usually do not obscure vision of the lowlands, as the cool wind gusts constantly create open areas between clouds or caligine. We often see plan around the summit condors and vultures.
