Great 4 - 5 hr easy hike, beautiful surrounds with snow capped Cotocachi Volcano, and Cayambe Volcano in the distance. Absolutely beautiful, trail is marked whole way and offers benches to rest after the few steep climbs, perfect!

Very beautiful. It often rains in the mid-afternoon during rainy-season, so try to plan starting your hike in the morning. Locals say hike takes 4-5hrs.

Ever changing lake views with a profusion of unique native flora and fauna. Well maintained trail. We hired a guide to explain the various uses of the medicinal plants.

Excellent trail with some steep slopes.

ModerAte to hard. It gets to 3900 meters high about 12700. Steep ups and difficult ascents but doable. Beautiful views of the crater. It’s hard to believe but they are farming to this altitude.
