This was an awesome, full day actually gone from my hotel almost 11 hours tour. The Lake is amazing and you can hike down and ride a horse or mule back up mules have more stamina... I recommend that. The stop on the way at the market and local's hut was also really cool and broke up the drive to the lake. Lunch after the lake hike was great, but the 3 hour ride back to Quito was a bit hard at the end. Highly recommend this tour. The guides were awesome and really informative.
