waterfalls tour in Quito
The Waterfalls Tour in Quito is one of the most recommended activities for visitors to Ecuador, especially trekking enthusiasts. Do not miss it.
You cannot talk about traveling to Ecuador without visiting its forests and waterfalls, without forgetting its volcanoes, and you cannot talk about seeing everything in Quito without the waterfalls tour.
Waterfalls of the Ecuadorian moors:
In Ecuador there are an impressive number of waterfalls that can be classified from the smallest to some impressive; some are very easy to access and others reserved only for experts who are willing to spend days and nights in the forests.
This phenomenon of abundance of waterfalls is related to the high number of volcanoes and wild forests, the location of our country on the line of the equator gives it an abundance of rain and natural resources; which you will be able to appreciate in our tour of the waterfalls .
The waterfalls for the locals:
There is no doubt that since the most distant time in history; water is the main factor that influenced the development of lifestyles on earth.
Our ancestors gave water an incalculable value in their lives and beliefs; that is why waterfalls are places that become magical places. In them our ancestors used it to cleanse the Aura and feel at peace with God. But not only the side of the soul enjoys this calm and peace; but also the waterfalls were and continue to be places for the locals to socialize and strengthen the ties that bind them.

Our waterfalls Tour in Quito:
The tour uses the route called Kana Yaku in which 3 of the most beautiful waterfalls in the lush forest and moors near Quito are visited.
In the first part we will do a walk of about 30 minutes more or less since we are still fresh. We will visit 2 waterfalls in a light way but the third one that is the most beautiful, we will be there for a long time, you can get into the waters, make videos or immortalize the moment with magnificent photographs.
Upon reaching this third waterfall, we relaxed a bit and took the opportunity to eat lunch included in the tour.
This experience is highly recommended by trekking enthusiasts, although its difficulty is low and suitable for everyone.
Let’s not forget that pets are welcome too.
Peculiarities of place:
The waterfalls that we are going to visit are the result of the waters coming from the Pintag River, the Antisana volcano and the great colossus the Cotopaxi volcano, this set according to the locals and ancestors gives its waters a lot of mysticism and positive energy, so bathing in its waters are like a blessing to the soul.
Way to the waterfalls:
Plaza Foch -> Ecovía to Playón de la Marín -> Cashapamba entrance -> Loreto town -> Hike -> Waterfalls
