PRIVATE TOUR COTOPAXI volcano is a still active volcano 5,897 meters above sea level with an almost perfect symmetrical cone and covered with a beautiful layer of white snow.
Your guide will be happy to meet you at your hotel at 8 am and will take you to the Cotopaxi National Park, located an hour and a half from Quito. Once arrived at the entrance of our private transport will take you through a pine forest to our first stop; the Cotopaxi Museum and visitor center. Here you can find a small collection of stuffed fauna and explanatory material.
On the way up we will pass by the Limpiopungo lake, a beautiful crater lake located at 3,800 meters. From this lake you will have an incredible view of the Cotopaxi volcano and the surrounding Andean mountains (weather permitting).
As you follow the track marked with time you reach the parking lot, which is 4,500 meters. This will be the starting point of our hike and adventure through the volcano (weather permitting, if we are not going to hike around the beautiful Limpiopungo lake). You will be challenged to reach the José F. Ribas Refuge, which is located about 300 meters higher.
The tour has come to an end after having returned back to the parking lot, the guide will take you back to Quito where we will arrive at 5 pm at your hotel.
