The hike to the mountain across Cotopaxi was a great experience. Though Cotopaxi was covered by clouds, we could have a glimpse of the peak off and on. It was a sight to behold.
Good day trip from Quito cold and windy though. Nice variety of things to see.
Great trip to Cotopaxi with Daniel. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about what he shows us, great English . Cotopaxi park is partially closed , due to possible eruptions. Nevertheless , we went as close as possible and had a great view of the snow capped volcano.
Diego was awesome! Very enthusiastic to show us around :
Cannot miss this if you visit Quito. The area around Cotopaxi is something to be experienced. We had an excellent guide who took us to the important points and relayed a lot of relevant information regarding our excursion. Be prepared to spend the number of hours listed on the description.
Excellent trip, well organized
We did Cotopaxi Glacier hike just two days before the August 14, 2015 eruption. It was a beautiful sunny day in Quito, we stopped at a look-out point, a great place to get an overview of the city. On the way, our tour guide gave us a brief introduction about the history of Quito and the volcanoes in Ecuador. It was cloudy in Cotopaxi. I assume this is a normal day in Cotopaxi due to the high altitude. Occasionally the wind blows the clouds away and we could enjoy a few moment of blue sky. This was a very difficult hike for me due to the high altitude although I had hiking experiences in Canadian Rockies. Slowly I made it to the glacier and I felt great.
