This full day trip starts with a private transfer to the indigenous market in Zumbahua – a colorful local market where you have time to explore on your own. From Zumbahua we cycle along the paved road through rough Andean volcano landscapes until we reach the stunning Quilotoa crater lake. We will take the hike inside the crater to enjoy the beautiful colors and surroundings, at the lake shore we will enjoy a tasty box lunch.
After visiting Quilotoa crater, we paddle along the paved road gradually downhill to the village of Chugchilan from where the road continues on more easy terrain all the way to Sigchos. The easy terrain will make it easy for you to soak up the beautiful scenery with many photo opportunities.

  • 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!


Discover the best highlights of the Quilotoa Loop!
