Laguna Papallacta - Photo by Henri Leduc

The Papallacta lagoon is a peaceful freshwater lake in the eastern foothills of the Andes Mountain Range. It is located at 3,180 m.a.s.l. in the buffer zone of the Cayambe Coca Ecological Reserve and the Antisana Ecological Reserve. The lagoon was formed by a damming of the Papallacta River, caused by the eruption of the Antisana volcano in 1726. Its waters come from the melting of the snow-capped Cayambe, Sarahurco and Antisana volcanoes, and from many creeks of the surrounding moors. (Papallacta, Ecuador)
