Rumiñahui is a long extinct volcano located in the Cotopaxi National Park south of Quito. The three high peaks are called Rumiñahui North (4,712 m), Rumiñahui Central (4,631 m) and Rumiñahui South (4,696 m). This tour is an excellent acclimatization climb activity with an exciting finish and beautiful views of the mountains El Corazon, Illinizas, Sincholagua, and the majestic Cotopaxi.
The weather in the area is very unpredictable so appropriate warm clothing is recommended. The climb is approx. 4-5 hours; reaching the summit at 4712m. It is important that you are prepared for this kind of altitude, we recommend acclimatizing at least two days around 3000m.
