Cotopaxi & Saquisili daytour


With an altitude of 5,897 meters, the majestic Cotopaxi is one of the highest active volcanoes in the world; only competing against two other volcanoes for the title. This giant peak boasts a perfectly symmetrical snow-capped cone and picturesque surrounding parkland. The Cotopaxi was also worshipped by ancient civilizations of the area, thought to be the bringer of rain and prosperous crops; the top of Cotopaxi was believed the place where God resided.


On the Thursday this daytrip departs early from Llullu Llama to include an early morning visit to the Saquisili market, a busy indigenous market with lots of interesting sights. After the market visit our driver takes you to the entrance of the Cotopaxi national park where you need to contract a guide for the day.
