Major volcanoes in Ecuador

Cotopaxi (Spanish pronunciation: [kotoˈpaksi]) is an active stratovolcano in (composite cone) the Andes Mountains, located in Latacunga city of Cotopaxi Province, about 50 km (31 mi) south of Quito, and 31 km (19 mi) northeast of the city of Latacunga, Ecuador.[2] It is the second highest summit in Ecuador, reaching a height of 5,897 m (19,347 ft). Cotopaxi is among the highest active volcanoes in the world. Its most recent eruption began on 14 August 2015, and ended on 24 January 2016.[3]

Cotopaxi is known to have erupted 87 times, resulting in the creation of numerous valleys formed by lahars (mudflows) around the volcano. The last eruption lasted from August 2015 to January 2016.[4] Cotopaxi was officially closed by the authorities to climbing until it reopened on October 7, 2017.
