TRIP OVERVIEW

Rising from the eastern end of the Tiopullo knot, the Rumiñahui volcano constitutes an excellent viewpoint of the volcanoes in this area. Rumiñahui means stone face in the Quechua language. It is an extinct and extensively eroded volcano, it has walls that rise almost 800 meters from its base, made of layers of lava, ash with basalts and small amounts of olivine. This volcano rises a few kilometers from Cotopaxi, Sincholagua and Pasochoa in the Real or Oriental mountain range, its last eruption seems to have occurred 9 million years ago and the Pleistocene glaciers have sculpted it into its current form. Rumiñahui is an excellent viewpoint of the volcanoes in the area. Strata of andesitic and basaltic andesites with traces of olivine are known about it. It is characterized by its grandeur and its wonderful landscapes. It has three peaks: The North or Maximum, the Central and the South. We will start our adventure at 6 am driving through beautiful landscapes. We will arrive at Cotopaxi National Park at 8:30 am. Visit the Limpiopungo Lagoon at 9:00 am and then we will begin our hiking to the summit of Rumiñahui Central. The hike will take 5 hours approx. (Difficulty: Medium – Advanced).
