Depart from Quito direction Riobamba. During this trip we will go through the Andean Region, covering approximately 400 km. rightfully known as “The Avenue of the Volcanoes” (German scientist - Alexander von Humboldt -1802). It is a breathtaking natural boulevard flanked by impressive volcanoes, both active and inactive, and giant peaks covered with glaciers and perpetual snow, towering well above 5 and even 6 thousand meters above sea level. On a clear day you might get a glimpse of the geometrically perfect colossus Mount Cotopaxi (5897m), one of the world’s highest active volcanos. Learn about the Andean Paramo (moorlands), enjoy beautiful panoramic views of the Antisana volcano (stratovolcano), a large glacier which at 5,704 m is the fourth highest volcano in Ecuador. In the afternoon continue direction Riobamba.
