Laguna Quilotoa is a beautiful volcanic crater lake located at 3800 meters (12,400 feet) between Zumbahua and Chugchilan. Its emerald water spans two kilometers. Local legend claims it is connected to the ocean and is therefore salty and sulfuric. The trail is now marked for the world famous hike from Laguna Quilotoa to Chugchilan through the Rio Toachi Canyon.  Laguna Quilotoa is also accessible by car or bus.
