Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Laguna Quilotoa, Laguna de Quilotoa, 070701 Ecuador

Visit To The Viewpoints Of Shalala And Quilotoa: The beginning of the lagoon of Quilotoa is Shalala viewpoint, a space built in 2014, with sustainable materials, that allows to contemplate the beauty of nature from 3900 meters above sea level. This is a project of the community, which was supported by the Ministry of Tourism. Its design was a winner of the second place of the 2015 Work of the Year Award. The attraction is also a resting place, which has three cabins (one for disabled people) and a restaurant offering a panoramic view of the crater.

Hike And Visit To The Quilotoa Lagoon: The crater of the dormant volcano forms a bowl that collects the azure waters of the lagoon. Its color is due to the accumulation of sulfur. According to legend, this was the scene of the battle between the Quilotoa gods who lived on the surface and Toachi, who was under the lake, because that aroused envy the ability of the first to reflect the color of the sky. This natural attraction is 15 kilometers away from the town of Zumbahua and is characterized by the icy winds that run the place.

Visit To The Artisan Workshop In The Community Of Tigua: Color is the protagonist of the stories that narrate the crafts of Tigua, works that are manufactured by the community of the same name. These paintings bear geometric and figurative forms, typical of the pre-Columbian and colonial times respectively. The traces expose the passage of time, which is an important element of the Andean worldview. Most are masks made of pine wood and paintings created on sheep skin, which tell experiences of everyday life.
