Ruminahui (volcano)

Ruminahui is a dormant, heavily-eroded stratovolcano above sea level. Situated in the Andes mountains 40 km south of Quito, Ecuador, it is overshadowed by its famous neighbour Cotopaxi.

The volcano is named after Ruminahui, who was an Inca general at the time of the Spanish conquest of the Inca Empire.

The canton of Ruminahui in the Ecuadorian province of Pichincha was named after the volcano.
