The condor of Quilotoa hike

Activities

Takes you around the rim of the Quilotoa crater and is absolutely unreal, with every step you take, you’ll see how the water below you inside the crater changes color. Along the trail, the lagoon will always be to one side and to the other, the stunning Andes Mountains.

The trail offers great exercise with one higher point which demands physical effort due to the perpendicularity of the path. Book this trip on a Saturday and a visit to the indigenous market in Zumbahua is included.
