COTOPAXI NATIONAL PARK
(private, full day, daily from Quito)

The Cotopaxi National Park is an ecological sanctuary of 36,000 hectares (88,920 acres) surrounding the highest active volcano in the world, specially attractive for nature lovers, with the treeless vegetation of the Andean moorlands or páramo. You may see herds of llamas, wild horses, and perhaps deer, rabbits, frogs and lizards. Bird life includes the Andean gull, ducks, several species of hummingbirds and with some luck, the condor. Look directly up the magnificent mountain, rising 6,005 meters (19,700 feet). Lunch at the very heart of breathtaking landscapes or at a hosteria nearby before returning to Quito late afternoon. Entrance fee to Cotopaxi National Park is extra.
