The Cotopaxi volcano, an almost perfect snowy cone that stands at 5,897 meters above sea level is something unique on the planet and is perhaps, next to Galapagos, the greatest symbol of our natural geography recognized in the world.
Thousands of mountaineers of all nationalities have reached their summit and many others dream of doing so. Because it is located in the center of the inter-Andean alley and very close to several cities such as Quito and Latacunga, Cotopaxi National Park is one of the most visited and surely where many people touch the snow for the first time.
The imposing Cotopaxi, one of the highest active volcanoes in the world, dominates the entire landscape of the protected area, which also includes two smaller ones, the Morurco (4,880 m), attached to the Cotopaxi, and the Rumiñahui (4,722 m), also very closely.

Cotopaxi National Park, which is 65 km from the city of Quito. The volcano is one of the most important attractions in Ecuador, as it is considered the highest active volcano in the world. In this place we can observe the endemic flora and fauna of this high-Andean area, including one of the most diverse flowers in the country, Chuquiragua, more than wild horses, white-tailed deer, llamas, among others.
