Beschreibung Hike around the Laguna Cuicocha - Otavalo - Ecuador

The Laguna Cuicocha is a popular place for the locals and for the tourists as well. The best way to explore the laguna is to hike around the lake. It offers you an amazing view over the lake with its two islands. With a bit luck and good weather may you see all the surrounding vulcanos as well. Including Cerro Imbabura, Volcan Cayamba and even Volcan Cotopaxi.

The hike is easy and straight forward. Sometimes the trail is not that obvious and you have to walk through bushes. However, just follow the most used path and you can not go wrong. Keep in mind, the earlier you start the better the view will be! Enjoy!


Take a bus from Otavalo to Quiroga or Cotacachi, from there you can hire a Pick Up Truck to the Laguna fot 4 Dollers. There also might be a bus towards Apuela.
Primitive camping is possible at the Laguna Cuicocha. Otherwise Otavalo has many cheap places to stay
