Around Pimampiro

20 Km from Pimampiro is the village of Sigsigpamba with no accommodation available and only a few basic shops. We are mentioning this town because it is the best access to the Puruanta lake, a very exciting four to five hours hike. The lake is set between the high paramo with charming surroundings for camping and trout fishing. Avoid hiking in the rainy season (November to May). The Mariano Acosta village is nearby.
