Cotopaxi in Ecuador is an iconic volcano with a rich past. Rising to 5,897 meters above sea level, it is the highest active volcano in the world. Besides its volcanic activity, the Cotopaxi also has a deep cultural significance for the indigenous populations of the region. Before the arrival of Spanish settlers, Cotopaxi was revered as a sacred mountain by pre-Columbian civilizations, which associated important cultural beliefs and rituals with it.
During the colonial period, the Cotopaxi attracted the attention of European explorers, including Wilhelm Reiss and Angel Escobar who made the first ascent of the volcano in 1872, thus marking the beginning of mountaineering in this region.
Today, the Cotopaxi is a popular tourist site, attracting adventurers and nature enthusiasts from all over the world.
