Acclimatization 5 days program
Acclimatization 5 days Rumiñahui or Corazón, Iliniza north, Full Day Quilotoa and Cotopaxi
The meeting point will be in our offices where we can verify with the guide the technical equipment for the tour. Once the review of the equipment is finished we will have a technical talk about the weather conditions, equipment to be used and the different heights we will be in.
Day 1: Corazón or Rumiñahui
After the chat and review of the equipment, we head towards the Rumiñahui volcano with a height of 4722 m.s.m. or Heart at 4788 m.s.m. These are 40 km from Quito (it will depend on the election). We arrive at the parking lot where we will take the equipment for the activity. We make the summit attempt which will depend on the climate. After the summit attempt, we descend towards the transport to go to the place of rest.
Day 2: Iliniza north
We start very early for breakfast and head towards the north Iliniza at 5126 m.s.n.m. This is located about 98 km southwest of Quito. Once the equipment is verified, we head towards the parking lot of the north Iliniza, and then make a little bed for about 3 hours until we reach the shelter, where we can take a break. Then start the summit attempt, this will depend on the climate. We made the descent to the parking lot to take the transport and go to the resting place in Machachi.
Day 3: Full Day Quilotoa
After having breakfast we take the transport to visit the Quilotoa Lagoon at 3914 masl, on the way to the lagoon we can see the indigenous market of Saquisilí, Pujilí or Zumbahua (this will depend on the day) and the Toachi River canyon. We arrive at the parking lot where after the guide’s instructions we will go to the lagoon where we can take walks to the center of the crater, at the end of the walk we return to the parking lot to go to lunch. We take the transport that will take us to our place of lodging.
Day 4 and 5: Cotopaxi
With the help of the guide we will realize the glacier school, this will depend on the climate. We will have dinner and we will rest to carry out the attack on the mountain in the early hours of the morning. Once the summit attempt has been made (this will depend on the climate) we return to the refuge to have breakfast. We will descend towards the parking lot for the return to Quito.
