Description

With Claudia's (our Couchsurfing host) father (retired alpinist) and another couchsurfer we took 4-wheel-drive car from Quito to Cotopaxi volcano. 4-wheel-drive car was needed for the last part in National Park. You can walk 3 days or take a ride by car :D
Then the last part was walk to the shelter at 4800m where we ate some warm food. Then (without Ania) we headed to the glacier at around 5300 m. As we didn't have any real climbing gear that was the last part we could go.  


Practical information

Prices for entering Cotopaxi national park varries for locals and tourists. If you are going with locals then it's possible that they will buy you a ticket with "local" price (10x cheaper).
