Climbing Cotopaxi Volcano, the 2nd highest peak in Ecuador is a unique and exciting experience. On your first day, you will hike to the refuge and climb at night to the summit to attempt reaching the peak to gaze at one of the most spectacular scenery you will ever see.
As one of the highest active volcanoes in the world, Cotopaxi, remains the most popular high altitude climb in the country due to its relative simplicity to climb. However it is considered a technical climb, because of the  climbing gear necessary for the ascent.  If you do well, you will be rewarded with the view over the nearly perfect conical shape of its crater at sunrise.
DAY 1
You will be picked up in Masaya at 8:30 am and collect your equipment before travelling to Cotopaxi National Park and hike up to the refuge. There you will receive a short brief and safety instructions and also practice climbing on ice before returning to the refuge for dinner and having a rest.
Walking: 4 to 5 Hr
 
DAY 2
You will get up at 00:00 am to start climbing and get a chance to reach the summit for sunrise. Depending on your experience it will take you between 5 and 7 hours to reach the top. After relaxing and enjoying the view, you will head back to the refuge for lunch and a short rest before travelling back to Quito.
Walking: 8 to 10 Hr
