Highland Views

Quilotoa in the Cotopaxi province is a volcanic lake. With stunning views, altitude and local indigenous people. Easy to get to from Latacunga by bus or by car. With an altitude of around 3800 masl.

There is a hike from the top of the crater to the lake, around 1410 m long. Doesnt seem¨far does it, but just you wait, steep paths, sometimes with loose stones and sand makes for an interesting hike, tough on the knees but for thoses who arrive at the bottom enjoy the well earned rest, because you have to clomb back up again. But there are horses for your comfort.

Stunning blue water with some hardy flora.
