Papallacta Lake Lookout

The eruption of the Volcano Antisana in the 18th century generated a lava flow that filled in the old glacier of the Papallacta River causing drainage to the Tambo River. This chain of natural events created the lagoon characterized by the dark tone of its waters. Its climate is cold and surrounded by reeds and pads

Guided walk through “La Isla” Path

It is a paved road that follows the path of the Cosanga River. The tour is accompanied by the singing of the different species of birds that live in the area of the páramo, and by the landscapes that the natural environment offers.
