Peguche Waterfall
Peguche is an indigenous artisan village near Otavalo. Among the natural attractions are the sacred Peguche Waterfalls. One of the prettiest excursions is one that circumnavigates San Pablo Lake stopping in villages like Agato and San Pablo del Lago, communities mostly dedicated to agriculture and handicrafts.

Ruins of Cochasquí
An archeological site with funeral constructions built in the form of a pyramid and mounds that belonged to the Quitu-Caras, the first inhabitants of Quito. The partially covered pyramids were constructed with a volcanic material from the surrounding areas called "cangahua."

Mojanda Lakes
These series of three lakes are found at the top of Mount Mojanda at an elevation of 3400 meters. The landscape is simply enchanting. Among the activities are hiking around the lake, biking, horseback riding and climbing to the top of Fuya-Fuya, the highest peak on Mojanda.

Glacier of Cayambe
Traveling through the wonderful Andean landscape to the refugio (mountain refuge) at the Cayambe volcano (5,790 m) is an ideal adventure for the most daring. From the refugio it is only a short walk to the glaciers. With a little luck, you may also see condors. The Cayambe volcano is the third highest peak in Ecuador and is one of the preferred destinations for mountain climbers.

Cayambe-Coca Ecological Reserve
Four large mountains are the frames of the Cayambe-Coca Ecological Reserve (RECAY): Cayambe (5790mt), Reventador (3485mt), Sarahurco (4725mt) and Puntas (4425mt). This bio-physical unit (a region where the climate, soil, and mountains form a unit that allow the development of living organisms) has a total size of 403,103 hectares and is considered to be one of the regions with a greater diversity of flora and fauna in Ecuador.
