Cotopaxi National Park tour is an exiting day that begins with spectacular views of the Andean landscape in the Avenue of the Volcanoes. Once inside the National Park you will hike up to the refuge that is located at 4800m / 15748 ft, time to rest will be good to refill your energy. Once done with the first part of the hiking you will continue a little more till you reach for the glaciers, a total altitude of 5000m / 16404 ft. On your way back you are going to stop again at the refuge to have a deserved lunch, followed by a down hilling to Limpiopungo Lagoon. You will return to the parking lot and take the way back to Quito.

The weather of Cotopaxi is unpredictable so we recommend bringing warm clothing with you.
