70 miles south of Quito along the breathtaking “Avenue of the Volcanoes”, the beautiful snowy peak of the Cotopaxi Volcano and national park dominates the countryside. Just under 6000m above sea-level, Cotopaxi is Ecuador’s second tallest peak and one of the world’s highest active volcanoes. Its graceful green shoulders are punctuated with mud and lava flows that pay testament to its destructive power. Cotopaxi boasts 86 known eruptions to its name which have helped create a wonderful array of natural habitats that harbour the region’s varied, native wildlife. Brocket deer, paramo wolves, puma and spectacled bears all make their homes on the slopes as well as birds ranging from buzzards, cock-of-the-rock, giant humming birds and soaring condor.
Cotopaxi offers excellent walking, riding, biking and photography. A number of historic, colonial haciendas ring the national park and provide the perfect base to explore its graceful slopes.
