We will depart from Quito in the morning and drive until our starting point (9,843ft/3.000m). We will enjoy a moderate uphill walk through Haciendas and past by typical Andean houses. The trek continues through the valley between Sincholagua and Pasochoa Peaks, where we can admire some waterfalls and Andean Forest along the Pita River, and then continue on a road to Chilcabamba Lodge (11,440ft/3.487m). We will spend the night at the lodge (-/BL/-)

We will start early in the morning and drive towards the east to Pita River Canyon for about 20 minutes. From there it will take us about 5 to 6 hours. The first section is a nice Andean Forest. The hike then continues on the border of Pita River, where we can appreciate the ancient lava flows from Cotopaxi last eruptions. We will get to Tambopaxi Lodge by late afternoon. We will spend the night at this beautiful place overlooking Cotopaxi (B/BL/-)
Our 4 to 5 hour hike starts in the morning. We will be walking in the base of both mountains Cotopaxi and Rumiñahui observing the native flora of the highlands and we will pass Limpiopungo Lake where we can see some of the representative Andean fauna, especially birds.
