Shared Tour: monday, wednesday, friday & Sunday
Cotopaxi Volcano Tour is an exciting day that begins with spectacular views of the Andean landscape in the “Volcano Avenue”. Once inside the National Park you will visit the world’s tallest active volcano: Volcán Cotopaxi (5897 meters, 19,347 feet), This giant, covered in ancient glaciers and illuminated by the intense Ecuadorian sun, invites us to immerse ourselves in the mythical “cordillera” of the Andes and to explore the cloud forests that hide different species of endemic flora and fauna.
All information about the Cotopaxi National Park is available at the Interpretation Center, or better known as the Park Museum. The Center has showrooms, a souvenir shop, and a coffee shop. It is located inside Mariscal Sucre Station (or Control Caspi entrance).
The Limpiopungo lagoon is located at the foot of the volcano and here one could enjoy the view of the Andean Paramo and take incredible shots of the lagoon and the volcano.
During this visit, we’ll encounter mystical landscapes that both surprise and enchant during the hike to José Rivas Refuge (4.864 m), and maybe even to the glacier (5.100 m). During the hike, you will have the opportunity to discover the amazing flora inside the reserve. Once at the refuge you will hike back to the parking. We will make a stop to enjoy the typical food of the area, we recommend chicken soup, the “locro” and the roasted lamb. There are also vegetarian options. (Lunch not included)
