As Susan mentions in her book, not many people have heard about this beautiful crater lake, including me. So I was interested to find out more about it.
What is Quilotoa Lake?
The Quilotoa Lake is the water-filled caldera of a volcano in the Western Andes of Ecuador. It is located in the Quilotoa area, about 43 miles (70 kilometers) southwest of Quito.
Turquoise water fills the lake making it a breathtaking sight. There are a number of beautiful photos of the lake and surrounding landscape in the book. Based on the photos and Susans description, hiking to and around this lake would make for a wonderful experience for travelers and expats alike.
Reading “The Quilotoa Loop – Ecuador’s Hidden Treasure”
There are nice photos in the book which also give a peek into the landscape and culture of this area of Ecuador.
The book is divided up by each day of Susan’s trip. As she shares her experiences along the way she includes details about hotels, restaurants, guides, and the small towns she stays in during her trip.
