This lake is filled with rainbow trout, which were introduced in 1952 from California when the brewery closed. Take the walk with a guide, because without a guide you will miss the importance of the various plants in this Cloud Forest.

The lake looks so special and stunning from every view point. The fresh air and colourful vegetation make the National Park amazing!

Cajas is spectacular, period. I happened to hike here on a beautiful sunny day and spent an inordinate amount of time before my hike walking around this lake to take photos from every angle. It is truly magnificent.

With some phantasy you could imagine this lagoon to be a bullring as it has a similar shape, but there the comparison stops. The lagoon near Las Cajas park entrance is a heaven for peace and quiet seekers.

The trail circumventing it is about 3.5 km (just over two miles). Altitude is around 3900m (just under 13,000 feet). Ideal for a pleasant walk, though come prepared as weather conditions could change abruptly at these altitudes. Rain, snow, fog, wind, slippery terrain are part of adventure in the highlands.

Better on weekdays, as during the weekend many locals from Cuenca and Guayaquil may visit.

No admission fee. The lagoon is part of Las Cajas National Park.

This lagoon is at one of the highest points of the road through El Cajas National Park. Because of its accessibility it is very popular, especially at weekends. There is a small car park, with a small restaurant and gift shop. There is a variety of walks from here but we decided to simply walk around the lagoon. This is a fairly short walk but covers rough ground, with a lot of undulations and the altitude makes it quite taxing. The scenery is stunning and there is some wildlife around to look for too. A very pleasant place to spend a morning or afternoon.

This is a beautiful lake high in the Andes in the Cajas National Park. We saw an Andean Duck, Coots, Andean Teal and several other birds there.

The picture looks great but we have never seen weather like that. However we do enjoy the brisk clean air and the great views.

If you're looking for a wander that will give you the feel of the Cajas, but the security of not getting lost, this is for you. The 2-3 hour circuit wends around the lake, near the Refugio. With a parking lot right by the office, it provides easy access and a fairly easy hike. Keep in mind that your still at almost 4000m (over 13000 feet), so it may not be good for those with breathing issues and definitely not good for people with mobility challenges. It's beautiful in both the sun and rain, but be prepared for cooler temperatures and unpredictable weather. Good footwear (hiking boots/shoes) are highly recommended.
