Experience the majesty of the world's highest active volcano
COTOPAXI NATIONAL PARK – Your vehicle leaves the hostel about 8.15am, returning by about 1.30-2pm. We have a quick tour of the national park as we drive all the way up to the parking area at approx 4,600m. From the parking area we trek up to the refuge at 4,800m to enjoy a hot drink and snacks before heading up to the glacier at over 5,ooom/17,000 ft (conditions permitting). We then trek back down to the parking area and drive down to approx 4,000m. For those who chose to do the mountain biking* – jump on! The first section is moderately steep before the trail levels out. Most of the ride is more “coasting” rather than steep hardcore downhill. We then load the bikes back on to the vehicle before heading back to the hostel for a late lunch. $30 pp *plus $5 – $10 extra if you wish to do the biking.
