Cuicocha is one of the most famous lakes in Ecuador. In a private car we drive to the entrance of the Cotacachi-Cayapas reserve, where we start a 5-hour walking tour that runs between 3100 and 3500 meters above sea level. Along the way we enjoy the biodiversity, the views of the picturesque lake of Cuicocha with its two islands and the view of the mountain peaks of Cotacachi, Imbabura and Cayambe.
