Pasochoa Volcano

Pasochoa is a 13.780 ft / 4.200 m old volcano, home to hundreds of species within the remaining Andean forests that lies in its collapsed caldera. This small volcano is placed in a privileged spot, since from its summit you will have a spectacular view of the Avenue of Volcanoes.

We will travel to northeastern flank of Pasochoa to take a less-demanding route to the summit, which takes about two and a half hours.
