Between 2015 and 2017, the Cotopaxi volcano, the most famous climb in Ecuador, became volcanically active which temporarily halted climbing activities. Cotopaxi eventually settled, only to awaken once more in October 2022, prompting cautious responses from authorities to prohibit climbing while allowing access for trekking in Cotopaxi National Park. In December 2022, Cotopaxi National Park reopened again, initially permitting only day visits due to safety concerns surrounding climbing. However, recognizing Cotopaxi’s significance, authorities collaborated with organizations such as ASEGUIM to devise safe climbing protocols.

In light of this, certified operators like Ecuador Eco Adventure were granted permission to resume climbing in Cotopaxi in 2024, albeit under stringent regulations. Entrusted by the Ministry of Tourism and Environment, we are tasked with leading climbers to Cotopaxi’s summit, prioritizing safety and sustainability. Embarking from the refuge at approximately 4,800 meters (15,748 feet), climbers confront altitude-related challenges, ultimately experiencing the rewarding summit. Each step embodies determination, promising unforgettable vistas.
