The Pedregal – Cotopaxi National Park - Ruins 1 day


The Pedregal – Cotopaxi National Park - Ruins / 1 day

We will leave Quito behind and head south through the Avenue of Volcanoes along the Pan-American Highway until we reach the small town of Machachi, here we will detour on a dirt and cobbled paved road until we reach the small village of El Pedergal at 3,500 meters above sea level. Our local guide and horses will be waiting at this meeting point to start the tour. We will ride along the most amazing landscapes admiring the different activities that the indigenous populations engage on their day to day lives. We will be able to admire beautiful landscapes, enjoy the cold fresh Andean air, observe the endemic flora and fauna and finally arrive to the Cotopaxi National Park. Once inside the park we will ride our horses to the “El Salitre” pre-Incan ruins that served as a strategic military viewing point for our ancestors; here we will stop to rest and enjoy lunch. Afterwards we will ride back to El Pedregal to leave our horses and head back to Quito in our private transportation.
