We will meet you in the morning at your hotel in Quito and start this tour heading South on the "Avenue of the Volcanoes”. Following the Pan-American Highway for about two hours will bring us the Cotopaxi National Park. We will make a stop at the visitor centre Campamento Mariscal Sucre to visit the natural history museum. After that we drive to the lagoon Limpiopungo crossing the wide high plateau at the slopes of Cotopaxi volcano. During an easy hike around the lagoon you get to know the typical vegetation of the Andean highlands and watch out for the local birds as the Andean humming bird and the condor. After the hike you continue to the rustic mountain refuge Tambopaxi on the high plateau. Here you will eat lunch with great sights on the Lahars fields of the Cotopaxi and the wide expansion of the nature park. In the afternoon you drive over the high plain to an old ritual place of the Incas, from which you have an excellent view across the high plain and the surrounding mountains Ruminahui, Sincholagua and of course the Cotopaxi. Later you leave the national park and return back to Quito on the Pan-American Highway. -/L/-
