DAY 1: COTOPAXI VOLCANO
On our first day of this adventure we are heading south of Quito to visit Cotopaxi National Park, travelling the famous route of the volcanoes. We use the travel time to absorb the sights of local villages, high Andean scenery and the unique attire of the indigenous people of this region. Once we arrive in the national park, we will be 3800 meters above sea level (12,460 ft. a.s.l.). Afterwards, our journey continues up to Cotopaxi Volcano on a road that twists and turns its way to the parking site of the refuge at 4.650 meters (15,255 ft a. s. l.) of altitude. From here we will hike to the refuge José Rivas at 4800 meters (15,750 ft a. s. l.). Due to the extreme altitude, this seemingly short hike will take an hour. We will ascend to the beginning of the glacier. After the hike we will take our bikes and ride on the slopes of the volcano on switchback trails all the way to Limpiopungo Lake enjoying amazing views and landscapes formed by the different eruptions of Cotopaxi volcano. In the afternoon we will return to Quito city.
