"Hiking around a Vulcano Lake" Laguna Cuicocha by filipdebont

Laguna Cuicocha Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 24 photos

While we were staying in Otavalo, we had the chance to make an excursion to the Laguna de Cuichoca.

With an old bus we needed an hour to get there.

In our travel description we could read that this trip around the lake was a 5 hour trip, but as the signs around the lake were not placed so good, we needed 6 hours to complete our journey.

And I must admit that it was not so easy to do, also because of the altitude (3200 - 3400 m above sea level).
