Quilotoa Full Day
Quilotoa Laguna is a rewarding daytrip that takes you off of the regular beaten tourist path high up into “grand canyon” area of the Andes. The laguna and crater will literally take your breath away, and the area is also culturally very interesting.
The itinerary is very flexible as there are various treks that you can do in this area – the most recommended is to trek into the crater itself down to the lake-side, with the option of riding a mule (or trekking) back out. The altitude of the crater (approx 3800 metres above sea level) make this an enjoyable but challenging walk.
Another recommended visit is the Tigua art workshop which showcases the colourful artwork typical of the region. There are also 2 local markets that make for wonderful visits – Saquisili (Thursday) and Zumbahua (Saturday). Your guide can help to coordinate these activities depending on your wishes and how much time you have.
