  • This Lake is strewn of Mt. paektu, Korea. Of course, I have seen the heavens and the Earth, but it was enough to really feel. If the schedule is free from Ecuador-low so we recommend that you visit!! The Lake and the mountains, this is really not a regret.

  • If there is you can stop also here. There is nothing special. From the parking lot leads up to the lagoon. Watch some birds and ducks are the rummschnattern. The Vulkan Cotopaxi is ready for a nice photo opportunity, because he throws his reflection on the still surface of the water, very nice.

  • It is a relatively small pond located at the foot of the volcano heart. It is a shallow laguno so much of it is covered by herbs. There is a trail to walk around the lagoon. There is also a path by which you can climb the volcano heart that this as 5 h of walk.
