The magnificent Antisana Volcano, located just a few kilometers from Quito, and its surrounding natural reserve is one of the most charming and breathtaking places of Ecuador. The Mica Lake, located within the reserve, is an idyllic place for bird lovers, as many species of Andean birds dwell along the shores of the lake; occasionally, Andean condors can even be seen gliding through the clear skies.
