Having 3 different picks, Rumiñahui is one of the most amazing volcanoes on Ecuador. On this tour you will reach the 2nd pick with an altitude of 4757m / 15607 ft. To reach this summit you need to hike for 4 hours, and on the descent you take 2 hours, if the weather conditions are good you will be able to appreciate an incredible landscape with views of Cotopaxi and nearby volcanoes. This is a perfect volcano for an acclimatization program and a first approach to altitude.
Is very important to be prepared for this kind of altitude so, we recommend to be acclimatized around an altitude of 3000m at least one day. The weather of this area is very unpredictable, reason of why you must be prepared with warm clothing.
