This lagoon is at 4000 m and is surrounded by a lovely walkway. The views are amazing. See the wild flowers, the birds, and of course, the volcano. The walkway is flat and well worth a stroll.

A few minutes from the park entrance is the Limpio Pungo area. It is a lake and you can hike around it. If you take your time to learn of the local species, it can take up to 3 hours. It took us a little...More

Quiet little lake with wildlife and gorgeous views around it. We saw several species of birds/ducks and even some wild horses having a drink. If clear, there are views of Cotopaxi and there are easy to follow trails that can be hiked. Maps are posted...More

The laguna here is full of wildlife and is a really serene and relaxing spot to visit after a tiring hike up Cotopaxi.

A magical glacial lake, home to dozens of types of migratory birds and a primary water source for wildlife from miles around. A must-see spot in the park!

Rather than walk to the refuge when visiting Cotopaxi Volcano, we opted for the hike (no elevation change) around Limpopungo Lagoon due to the overcast skies and high altitude. If it was clear, we would have gotten a great view of Cotopaxi anyway. The hike...More

This lake is in the shadow of Cotopaxi volcano, on a plateau. It is cold and windswept, with uncomfortable road access. The scenery is magnificent, especially if Cotopaxi shows itself. There is a good amount of bird-life at the lagoon, considering the altitude. It is...More
