The Pululahua reserve is located 30 minutes North from Quito. The reserve covers 3383 hectare, protected by the state. The reserve was an active volcano in the past, and has a crater created due to its volcanic activity. The volcanic crater is very fertile and hence has developed grasslands and cultivated landscape. Numerous trails with the beauty of nature infused with enormous species of birds and flowers can be found here.
