el lechero

Troncal de la Sierra

A Sacred Spot to Siesta Above Otavalo

After an hour walk through the villages and farms above Otavalo, find repose with local farm workers beneath El Lechero, the sacred Kichwa tree that is the soul of a lover whose family would not let him be with his love; she is personified in Lago San Pablo, which he looks over below. I much preferred the view of Imbabura Volcano, looking over both.
