ROUTE MAP

TRIP OVERVIEW

This full-day cultural tour begins with a visit to a local indigenous market at Saquilisilí or a historic church in Pujilí (Thursday/Sunday). The drive to Laguna Quilotoa displays a beautiful view of the Andean mountains, passing the ancient canyon of Zumbahua and many indigenous towns and farmlands. Before lunch, we will visit a local indigenous home, where you have the opportunity to interact with the inhabitants and perhaps learn some Quichua. The tour includes a hike down into the Laguna Quilotoa, a sparkling emerald lake inside the inactive volcano crater. The return hike takes one hour, or there is the option of renting a mule for $12.

We will arrive back to Quito in the early evening.

 

Meals included: Lunch.
