Along the way you can see vast nature and a biome above 4000 meters, with fauna and flora characteristic of the Andes, paramo, springs, polylepis and fauna. From here you walk for about 2 hours to have views of the entire volcano, the beautiful glacier and the yellow lagoon. The walk ends at the entrance to the glacier and then returns to the car.
