Day 1: Cotopaxi National Park

Breathtaking scenery from the world's highest active volcano.

After an early morning drive east towards the Chillos Valley, head south, along the "Avenue of the Volcanoes", viewing the spectacular and breathtaking high plains surrounding the magnificent snow-capped Cotopaxi - the earth's highest active volcano (19347ft/5897m), with possibilities of seeing the Andean Condor. After lunch in the Limpiopungo valley (12540ft/3800m) ascend to El Parqueadero (15180ft/4600m). From this point, hike for about an hour to El Refugio, the volcano's refuge lodge (15840ft/4800m). A short walk from here will take us to the nearest glacier. You'll know why this experience is called "Nature's finest thrill"!

This is a full day tour.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
