Pululahua Crater, an active volcano thousands of years ago, is today a peaceful valley perpetually dampened by the mist. The name comes from the Quechua words, “smoke from the water”. It forms part of the Pululahua Geobotanical Reserve, located 10 minutes north of the Ciudad Mitad del Mundo (The Middle of the World). The reserve covers an area of 13,000 hectares and contains approximately 1,200 vegetable species plus a diversity of bird, mammal and insect species.
El Crater Restaurant
After visiting Intinan Museum on Sunday, we will stop for a five-star lunch at El Crater Restaurant over-looking Pululahu before heading to El Encanto Resort.
