Cotopaxi
 
Cotopaxi -
Cotopaxi (or; "Smooth Neck of the Moon") is one of Ecuadors, or should I say south-americas, famous mountains. It stands 5897m (19,347 ft) tall into the sky and is therefor one of the highest active vulcanos on the earth having erupted at least 50 times since 1738.
Also interesting is that Chimborazo, close to Cotopaxi and a little bit higher at 6268m is supposed to be the highest mountain on earth measured from the centre of our planet since it lies on a spot close to a bulge in the ecuator.
