Cotopaxi-600

Cotopaxi Volcano is known as one of the highest active volcanoes in the world. Its summit reaches the altitude of 5897m above sea level and it is in fact one of the most impressive and beautiful mountains of Ecuador.

Day 1: From Quito we drive south to the Cotopaxi National Park. Our transport will take us to the parking lot at 4600m from where a 1hour trek will take us to the Rivas Hut located on the north western side of the volcano. In the afternoon we will do some practices on the closest glaciers. Stay overnight in the Hut (4800m). (LB, D).

Day 2: At midnight, and after a hearty breakfast starts the climb to the summit of Cotopaxi Volcano (5897m). After reaching the summit we can enjoy stunning views of the impressive crater and the surrounding volcanoes. Return to the refuge and to the parking lot.  Transport back to Quito. (B, LB).
