Ecuador’s central valley runs almost 200 miles south from Quito to Riobamba, with the Pan American Highway running down this “Avenue of the Volcanoes” formed by two parallel chains of mountains, including eight of the country’s ten highest peaks.
Chief among these is the famous cone-shape of Cotopaxi, at 5,900 metres the world’s highest active volcano, which remains snow-capped for most of the year. It ranks with Kilimanjaro as a tough tourist climb and when inactive is open to all, with well organised trips. It is part of the Cotopaxi National Park, which offers a super range of outdoor activities from walking to Ecuador riding holidays and visiting indigenous local villages and markets. The Thursday market at Saquisili near Latacunga is one of the most colourful and lively and typical of the traditional markets up and down the Avenue of the Volcanoes.
