  Climbing the Cotopaxi
by filipdebont

As soon as everyone was dressed up with a good coat, a hat and gloves, we started climbing,

Our destination was the Refugio Jose Rivas, which was located at 4800 metres.

To go up there were two possibilities. There was a trail which went straight up, it was the shortest but also the most difficult. The other trail went up the volcano in zigzag, so the inclination of the path is easier to do.

Of course we did choose for the zigzag trial.
