Cotopaxi Summit is arguably the most popular tour for an active volcano in Ecuador, attracting climbers of all walks; all hoping to summit. Although not considered difficult among avid climbers, it is on the technical side of things, where crevasse rescue gear, ice axe, crampons and other gear are required for its ascent. Known as the world’s third highest active volcano, with a nearly perfect conical shape & only 2 hours away from the main capital acknowledges its popularity. An accredited mountain guide is required for those attempting to summit, climbs can be attempted year round, there is no precipitous change in weather where attempting to submit would be discouraged. Climbers reaching the summit are greeted with a 480 crater meters in width, a stunning surrounding landscape, the presence of fumaroles and a faint smell of sulfur and success.
