QUILOTOA LAGOON

 

QUILOTOA LOOP
 
Quilotoa, an emerald colored lake located inside a volcano crater, is one of the Andes’ gems. At 3800m, the lake is also a host to surrounding indigenous communities. The drive to  Quilotoa passes through the Zumbahua canyon and various indigenous towns and farmlands. Depending on the day, we will visit either the Saquisilí (Thursdays), or Pujilí (Sundays) indigenous markets so you can appreciate the contrast between these and those of the Imbabura province (Otavalo.) Before lunch, we will visit Shalala, a community well known for their handicrafts. Weather in Quilotoa is very unpredictable, so we recommend being prepared with warm and waterproof clothing (layers always help). 

 

ITINERARY: 
7am Pick up from the meeting point (location depending on the hotel you’re staying) Leave towards Saquisili or Pujili Indian markets (depending on the day) Depart to Quilotoa Lagoon Arrival to Quilotoa and hike around the crater  Lunch Visit Tigua community Return towards Quito.
