If you enjoy a fast flowing track combined with some easy trails, this ride is for you. We start with an early transfer to Sigchos from where we cycle along the easy road direction to Chugchilan. Throughout the tour there will be many opportunities to take photographs and interact with the friendly local people. We will stop in the village of Chugchilan where you can go for a short walk.
From Chugchilan we continue on a paved road that will gradually ascend until we reach the community of Quilotoa. You can enjoy the stunning views over the emerald green lake and the impressive surroundings. We hike downhill inside the crater until we reach the shore where we will enjoy our boxed lunch. To get back, you can either rent a horse or hike up.
Then it’s time to slowly head back to Isinlivi, either by car or by bike – you decide!

  • This trip is currently organized by Llullu Llama Mountain Lodge in Isinlivi but can also be organized through the accommodations in Chugchilan.
  • Easy to Intermediate level – the car will stay behind you at all times.
  • Best to book in advance!
