    We will leave Quito early in the day and head towards the Cotopaxi National Park. We will make an initial stop at the Limpiopungo Lagoon (4000m), where we will take a short hike around the lagoon, at the same time contemplating the incredible views of Cotopaxi and Rumiñahui. We will continue our tour crossing the Limpiopungo esplanade, where we can observe the large rocks dragged by the Cotopaxi Volcano eruptions, to finally head towards the parking lot where the approximately 45-minute hike to the Cotopaxi José Ribas refuge (4800m) begins. The tour will end with some hiking to get closer to the glaciers and take some photos of this unforgettable adventure.
