Tourist Attractions in Quito

Cotopaxi Volcano

Cotopaxi is an almost perfect conical volcano, located 5897 meters above the level, in the center of the inter-Andean alley, in the province of Cotopaxi. Only 62Km northeast of Latacunga and 75Km southeast of Quito.

It is one of the symbols of Ecuadorian natural geography and one of the highest active volcanoes in the world. It is considered by indigenous people of the Andes as a sacred mountain.

Cotopaxi is one of the favorite destinations for national and foreign tourists who love mountains, due to its glacial climate. It has spectacular and unique landscapes, surrounded by pine forests, mountains, lakes and rich vegetation with plants such as chuquiragua that cling to ashy soils on its volcanic slopes.
