The Equator Highlights 1/3
An impressive caldera now filled with great diversity and a small population, declared as a Geobotanical Reserve in 1966. With an altitude of 1800t to 3356 meters (5906 to 11011) feet, Pululahua stands true to its Quichua name meaning cloud of water. A rather consistent fog covering the caldera is one of the main attributes that nourishes the flora and fauna found in the caldera, home to a variety of orchids, mosses and lush tree vegetation.
