Toachi River Canyon in Ecuador

The Toachi River Canyon is a canyon located near the Quilotoa Volcano in Ecuador. It was created by the pyroclastic flows from the volcano's eruptions.

The Toachi River Canyon has an average depth of around 40 meters but its highest point is around 100 meters deep. The base of the canyon is formed by volcanic bombs and small stones called lapilli which are rock fragments ejected from the nearby volcano.

The canyon gets its name from the Toachi River that runs inside the canyon. The river is famous for its unique rafting conditions.

Toachi River Canyon is a spectacular place to visit. It starts at the Quilotoa Volcano and eventually fades into the Andean landscape. The canyon is located in the Cotopaxi Province at an altitude of 3,860 meters above sea level.
