The descent into the canyon was on a trail of loose sand and gravel. It had rained the previous night but the trail was in great shape. The loose material would make climbing hard but we descended easily and quickly. At the bottom, it took us a few minutes of wandering the shoreline to locate the bridge (a log across the water). The climb out of the canyon was more gradual than the descent and footing was noticeably better.
The original plan was to stay at Posada de Tigua but with no other hikers around we opted to continue to the highway and waved down the next bus to Latacunga.
This hike is often left off the Quilotoa Loop but it is very scenic and well worth the effort. Here is the summary description of our four day hike: Quilotoa Loop.
