Itinerary

Day 1
Rumiñahui Central Peak (4634 m / 15203 ft)

Pickup from your accommodation in Quito at 7.00 a.m. and 2-hour ride to Limpiopungo in the Cotopaxi National Park. This shallow lake at 3800 m / 12467 ft is the trailhead to Rumiñahui, an impressive caldera with 3 rocky summits – our aim is the Central peak rising at 4.634 m / 15203 ft. The 6 – 7 hour round trip starts as a gentle hike, from paramo grasslands with lots of chuquiragua flowers to the rocky base of Rumiñahui. The final stretch before the summit is pretty steep and includes some rock scrambling. From the top, enjoy views of Antisana, Sincholagua and Cotopaxi, our final goal! Descent and transfer to lodge. 

Night in lodge (3125 m / 10252 ft) / Including box lunch and dinner
