Quilotoa Loop Hike
The Quilotoa Loop through the central highlands is a great trek to experience the beautiful countryside of the Andes. During this trekking you will pass indigenous and mestizo villages, meet local farmers, and enjoy spectacular sceneries with deep canyons, paramo highlands and snow-capped peaks.
During this special trekking we spend the nights in cosy hostels with fireplaces, so it is the perfect trek for those who love rough nature, but don’t like camping. The trek finishes at the village of Quilotoa, close to the lake with the same name. The Quilotoa Lake is one of the most impressive crater lakes of South America.
