Arrival to the Cotopaxi National Park

Once inside the National Park, we walk towards the refuge that is at 4800 m. Certainly here we will rest a bit to fill our energy.

Once this is done, we walk a little further until we reach the glaciers, at a total altitude of 5000 m. Also, on the way back, we will stop at the refuge to see the rest of the group that did not climb the glaciers. While we descend to the parking lot to listen to the guide’s instructions. Therefore, listen to each instruction provided by the guide on the use of bicycles and the recommendations it offers. Certainly enjoy the descent to the lagoon of cleanliness.

Due to all the adrenaline adventure and fun we have, you will probably want a good hot soup. For the reason that we headed to our lunch. Finally we will return to Quito.
