Inside the National Park we hike up to the refuge which is situated at 4,810m (15780 feet) on the Cotopaxi snowline. Depending on conditions we will then hike up to 5,000m (16,404 feet) where it can be possible to see the glacier. Lunch is served with spectacular views to the valley below and onto the surrounding volcanoes, followed by a safety briefing to commence our descent on mountain bikes!
