Isinlivi / Chugchilan / Quilotoa

The Quilotoa is a crater in the form of a boiler filled with water of 3 kilometers wide and with 250 meters of depth that was formed by the collapse of this volcano, followed by an eruption approximately 812 years agp, which produced a pyroclastic flow and flows of mud that reaches the Pacific Ocean, which deposited volcanic ashes through the air along the Andes, whose dissolved minerals gave it the emerald green in particular, as well as having fumaroles at the bottom of the lake. That give a unique appeal, in addition we can have direct contact with the indigenous community that bares the same name of the Quilotoa crater.
