Why stay here?
The Mountain Lodge at the base of the Cotopaxi - 3,487 mts
Looking south from Quito, Mt Cotopaxi, the country’s most impressive snow capped volcano and the second highest active volcano in the world – the highest is in Bolivia - is a spectacular sight. The most important feature of the ‘Avenues of the Volcanoes’, the perfect conical shape of this permanently snow capped mountain attracts national and foreign visitors every day of the year, making the National Park that bears its name the most visited in continental Ecuador.
Chilcabamba Ecolodge story is based on partners and owners who are Ecuadorian climbing pioneers that together have 85 years of experience, they have organized national climbing clubs that have explored the Andes as well as famous Ecuadorian expeditions to the Himalayas and the Alps. They – and Tropic – know mountains!
Located only 6kms from the northern border of Cotopaxi National Park at 11,400 feet, Chilcabamba is an ideal destination for family trips, highland hiking, bird watching, acclimatization outings, picturesque mountain biking and horseback riding with local guides from the nearby community of Pedregal.
Chilcabamba is also a perfect base to visit the world famous Cotopaxi National Park. The entrance is only five minutes away. Guests here may also want to arrange to climb Pasochoa, Rumiñahui, Sincholagua and Cotopaxi.Information
