Day 2: Quilotoa - Chugchilan 4 hour hike
Stop At: Laguna Quilotoa, Laguna de Quilotoa, 070701 Ecuador
Quilotoa is a water-filled caldera and the most western volcano in the Ecuadorian Andes. The 3-kilometer (2 miles)-wide caldera was formed by the collapse of this dacite volcano following a catastrophic VEI-6 eruption about 600 years ago, which produced pyroclastic flows and lahars that reached the Pacific Ocean and spread an airborne deposit of volcanic ash throughout the northern Andes. This last eruption followed a dormancy period of 14,000 years and is known as the 1280 Plinian eruption. The fourth (of seven) eruptive phase was phreatomagmatic, indicating that a Crater lake was already present at that time. The caldera has since accumulated a 250 m (820 ft) deep crater lake, which has a greenish color as a result of dissolved minerals.
