Attractions & Activities In Cotopaxi, The Avenue Of Volcanoes
Rumiñahui volcano provides the opportunity for alpine enthusiasts to sport their crampons in Ecuador. The extinct volcano, located in the Cotopaxi National Park, has three peaks: Rumiñahui Sur, Rumiñahui Central, and Rumiñahui Norte, each reaching a height of almost 15,500 feet.
Climbing Rumiñahui early in your personalized tour to Ecuador is a great way to acclimatize before tackling some of the more high-altitude ascents. The climb offers spectacular views of the neighboring mountains of Cotopaxi, El Corazón, and Los Illinizas, as well as wildlife-spotting opportunities with wild horses, magnificent Andean condors and even pumas living in the area. Rumiñahui can be climbed year-round, but the most favorable conditions are in December and January, and in July and August (these summer months are usually clearer but can be subject to gusty winds).
