Cotopaxi in Eruption Again After 135 Years

The Cotopaxi Volcano finally erupted again after 135 years of beein asleep, since the last eruptive period from 1877 to 1880. It is an incredible event of the nature to see (from a safe distance), but it presents many challenges for the inhabitants of the area surrounding it.

South Quito is located aproximately 60 km north west from the volcano, and today, after the 4 main freatic exposions in which ash was expelled up to 8 km above the crater rim, some of that ash has been falling in the valleys surrounding Quito and in the main city too, not to say to the west and south west of the volcano. The flights towards Quito are cancelled for the momment, but we will keep you updated with this natural event.

We will be happy to organize a trip or adventure in Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia or Galapagos for you. Visit us at www.surpasstravel.com.
