"Going to the top of Cotapaxi,..." Ecuador Off The Beaten Path Tip by Jon_Nordmark

Ecuador Off The Beaten Path: 75 reviews and 94 photos

 
 

Going to the top of Cotapaxi, 19,344 feet high, is thrilling. Starting off at 11:00 PM, wrapped in four layers of clothing. Walking through snow with a small group, tied together with ropes, guided by headlamps. Watching the sun come up, turning the sky red, over the huge glaciers. The round trip from basecamp at 15,000 feet takes about 10 or 12 hours.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
