Cotopaxi National Park (Spanish: Parque Nacional Cotopaxi) is a protected area in Ecuador situated in the Cotopaxi Province, Napo Province and Pichincha Province, roughly 50 km south of Quito. Trek one of the highest active volcanoes in the world with 5897 m!

Due to its perfectly symmetrical cone, covered in a thick blanket of snow and ice, the Cotopaxi is one of the tourist highlights in Ecuador and it’s most visited and climbed volcano.The Cotopaxi National Park is situated in a beautiful paramo plateau, where wild horses graze on the extensive plains at the foot of the volcano or gather to drink at the lovely Limpiopungo lagoon, which reflects the white peaks of nearby Volcan Rumiñahui and makes a great spot for watching waterfowl and other birds. Walking in the National Park, you will notice pumice, ash, stone and other volcanic debris amid the tiny páramos plants. On a day trip to the Cotopaxi National Park it is possible to drive as high as 4500m, then trek up a sandy scree slope to reach the snout of the glacier at 5000m.

Prepare to hike, bike and smile.  Trekking for all ages but biking must be experienced or confident with downhill biking.

I did this tour on July 22nd, 2016. I enjoyed the tour so much despite the fact that it was cloudy that day and we didn’t get to see the peak of Cotopaxi.

Our tour guide, Andres, was very friendly and knowledgeable. He encouraged me to challenge myself to hike to the top of the mountain to see the peak of Cotopaxi and helped me hike down. I really appreciated that. I also got a chance to ride a mountain bike for the first time in my life and I did it for 16 km!!

This tour truly extended my limit 🙂 Thank you so much!
I strongly recommend this tour.
