QUITO FULL DAY LAGOON TOUR
Rejuvenate yourself on a full day tour to beautiful Laguna de Mojanda where you can hike in the unspoiled surroundings. On this day tour, your guide will lead you to the summit of Peak Fuya Fuya (4 200m). From this vantage point you can enjoy incredible views of the Ecuadorian Andes on a clear day. Relax after the hike while you listen to the water lapping on the lagoon shoreline. Included in this tour is a fascinating cultural visit to Cochasqui Archaeological Park. The ancient structures (or pyramids) in the reserve date back to pre-Inca Empire times (around 950 AD-1530 AD). Don’t forget to buy salt so you can feed the grazing alpacas near the pyramids.
