The lake is located near Cotopaxi at 4000 m. We walked around the lake and had a nice view of the lake and the mountains.

We celebrated our 37th wedding anniversary with this walk. On a sunny day with Cotopaxi clear, what more could you want? A lot of folks go up to the car park and refuge for a walk- but this walk is easier (it's not up and...More

The lake is worth getting out and walking around for all of the bird life. Andean Lapwing, Andean Teal, and Andean Gulls are nesting in the marshes and can be best seen from the walk. Views of Cotopaxi are amazing if it reveals itself in...More

Be sure to bring warm clothes. Usually windy. If weather permits, beautiful reflections of Cotopaxi volcano. Could take 2 hours to make the whole trail.

The best thing about this lake was the walk to get there in the national park -lots of lovely flowers and views of the mountains-unfortunately Cotopaxi was hidden in cloud ,otherwise the walk would have been spectacular.

A lovely feature. Obviously would be great if Cotopaxi is sunny. Even better if reflected in Laguna. However nice views in all cases. Worth the stop as part of a trip or tour.

You can drive to the lake from Quito and either head back to Quito the same day or overnight around Latacunga to go on to Quilotoa or other nearby sites the next day. Note that the lake is MUCH smaller than it appears in most...More
