Cotopaxi Trails: Lodge-to-Lodge

Hike the best of Cotopaxi National Park on this lodge-to-lodge itinerary, in the heart of the Avenue of the Volcanoes. Explore the rivers and waterfalls of the Pita River system, the headwaters for much of Ecuador, and cross the vast highland Páramo, or alpine tundra, between welcoming mountain lodges. Enjoy views of rugged volcanoes at every turn and wrap up your time in the National Park on the slopes of Cotopaxi, ascending to the snow line at nearly 16,000 feet.
