Leave early in the morning and take “The Volcanoes Avenue” to Latacunga. Cotopaxi is the highest active volcano in the world (5,897 msnm) located two hours from Quito. Along the way, we’ll see various mountains including, El Corazon, Rumiñahui, Illinizas, Pasochoa, and Atacazo. The national park in Volcanoes Avenue allows us the opportunity to hike around the lake at the foot of the Volcano. After, we’ll climb the volcano by vehicle until 4,500 meters. Then if the National Park regulations allow us we will climb until 4,800 meters where there is a refuge and from there continue up to the glaciers. Of course, all plans depend on the weather. Also, we’ll visit the Interpretation Center where we’ll learn about the flora and the fauna of the park and the moors protected area. Overnight in Cotopaxi /Chugchilan.
