Indigenous Andean Communities – Landscape – Hike – Mules Ride
In the morning and after breakfast, you will head to explore the Quilotoa Lagoon. On the way, we will stop to visit an indigenous local house from the ‘Paramos’ (Andes). Observe their clothes and customs and see their wonderful home which is a typical indigenous house made of straw. Enjoy time with them as you chat, watch and learn about their life and how they prepare the soil to sow. After this great experience, we will head to the town of Tigua, famous for its naive paintings. You will have lunch and then, we will continue up to the Quilotoa volcano, where you will be able to descend to the lake located inside the crater or just walk around the crater. Admire this incredible place and then get ready to enjoy an unforgettable experience by mule back riding. Enjoy the most beautiful landscape in the highlands and traditional indigenous villages on your drive back to Quito late in the afternoon.
Note: On Thursdays, there is an optional visit to the Saquisilí Indigenous Market
