In Machachi we make a quick stop for breakfast to then visit a local indigenous market (Thursdays or Sundays), here markets are the way indigenous people commercialize their agricultural products and handcrafts.
We then arrive at Cotopaxi National Park, where the volcano is (5997 masl) making it the highest active volcano in the world. The road takes us all the way up to 4800 masl were the first refuge is. On the way down we can visit LIMPIOPUNGO lagoon. Then we return to Quito.
