    Were in may 2016 g. Pass the town of Zumbahua, of which only 1.5 hours drive from the coast. From here to Kilotoa lagoon, we can just 12.5 km. We drive along the Toachi River Canyon (Rio Toachi), which was formed after the last eruption of the volcano Kilotoa, occurred in the year 1280. Access to the Canyon, or rather to the viewing platform, free of charge, and to see it in its full glory, you have to go through a small Pine Grove. And then opened before my eyes truly monstrous creation of nature: the ability to cling to walls of a Canyon 400 m height and slope in 60 degrees can be read geological annals of Earth. The bushes are visible at the bottom of the Canyon and abundant grass vegetation, as well as mosses, ferns. On the Internet it says that the wealth of flora Sigchos canton where the Toachi Canyon, called "the hanging garden of the Andes". We, the inhabitants of flatland, it is hard to imagine how can land, mouth wide and inhale due to form such a vast gorge (the length of the Canyon about 5 miles). Canyon somewhere, in some of the most dangerous places is fenced, but tourists are attracted by the cliff, to a small flat pad which leads a narrow isthmus. Everybody wants there to be photographed on the edge of the precipice, and because we also did it, then say that no photo can never reflect the depth. And here take place on a track width of Palm was really scary, and even wanted to crawl on all fours, and it's adventurous photo much better do not directly but with the side where you can see all the volume failure. And even better not think about what the element of water in this place really won the firmament, and today the sandstone may also someday to surrender and settle under the feet of tourists. Alejandro does not say whether this dramatic Canyon accidents, but it is easily imaginable ...

    The Canyon of the Rio Toachi is a stopping point before reaching the Quilotoa. The lookout is located on the same road and is easily accessible. This cannon has been produced by the volcano eruptions Quilotoa, creating a spectacular view from the highest point of the Canyon. Inside through the Toachi River leading to the Ecuadorian coast. The views are breathtaking, and I recommend making the stop before proceeding to the Quilotoa because I went to the sunset and the shade of the Canyon not let you appreciate the background. If you go to the Quilotoa get the stop because it will not take you long time appreciate the beauty of this place.

    This was part of a full day tour with Gray Line. We stopped for a while to take in the view, walk around and take pictures. You can walk quite close to the steep drops and out on a narrow ledge. I wou...  more »

    It is a canon, with a depth of 50 m, not very long, near the Quilotoa lagoon and little common in the country
