Hiking to the Cotopaxi Mountain (Ecuador)
Our last day in Ecuador was marked by hiking to the Cotopaxi Mountain (Ecuador). It was a tiring day, but we did it, I reached the Jose Rivas Refuge at 4864 meters (15,973 feet) above the sea level.
The story about the hiking will come later but this time, let me share two images of the hiking and the amazing view of Cotopaxi Mountain. Have a great week!

Those are beautiful! The one on the left is especially striking.
Thank you so much! The left one was when we were halfway to the refuge. I saw some people did not continue to the top. I was about to give up too.
I’m sure that altitude made hiking a challenge.
The black and white gives it an interesting starkness. I can’t wait to hear more about the hiking and trip Indah.
Thank you!! I find it better in the black and white tone too. I hope I can finalize the write up soon 🙂 Have a great Thursday!!
Lovely it looks, as if you have conquered the world 🙂
It felt like that as we arrived in the refuge, 😀 – and having a cup of hot choco completed an unforgettable hike 🙂
That is impressive you managed a hike at that elevation. I had enough trouble walking up hills in Quito!
Thank you! I chewed the coca leaves ( a lot!) and it worked to combat the altitude sickness.
I have Warren Miller (RIP) film of skiers at Cotopaxi Mountain. Nice shots and thanks for sharing 🙂
Thank you so much! 🙂
This is so awesome Indah. I have been reading up on those 3 Ecuador volcanic giants, which Cotopaxi is one of them, along with Cayambe and Chimborazo. Really looking forward to your write up. Thanks for sharing these 2 photos! 🙂
My pleasure, Carl! It’s my first time hiking in a high mountain. Ecuador has incredible mountains – yes, those giants are stunning to see! Thank you 🙂
Stunning pictures in B&W, Indah…:-)
Thank you so much ❤
Black and white makes it striking and it looks COLD!
Can’t wait to hear about the hiking!
It was indeed cold, and snowing and..super windy! I had no idea why I kept doing it 😀 I will tell the complete story soon 🙂
Looking forward to your story!
