Woohoo we hiked the entire Quilotoa rim! It took us about 6hrs. I was a slug and took frequent rests and went very slowly for parts of it. We started from the little village of Quilotoa, at about 12,500ft and hike to the highest part...More

Last year I visited Quilotoa Lagoon with my family, it’s a beautiful place, with beautiful landscapes, but the weather it’s too cool is between 3 and 15 degrees Celsius, for that sometimes I felt sick for the climate change. Quilotoa Lagoon is located 66 kilometers...More
