Parque Nacional Cajas, Ecuador | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
The Parque Nacional Cajas (Cajas National Park) is a national park in the highlands of Ecuador. It is located about 30 km west from Cuenca. It covers an area of 285 km² and ranges in altitude between 3100m and 4450m above sea level. It offers a tundra vegetation on a jagged landscape of hills and valleys. The park contains about 270 lakes and lagoons. Glaciers shaped the landscape of Cajas leaving U-shaped valleys and ravines. Cajas provides about 60% of the drinking water for the Cuenca area. This lake, called Laguna Llaviucu or Zorrocucho, at an altitude of 3160 meters (10,367 feet) is the lowest of the major lakes and one of the few still in the cloud forest zone. Humidity, low temperature, and high altitude with low atmospheric pressure create an ecosystem that accumulates organic material in the soil that is able to retain water. The high grassland ecosystem (páramo) contains plants suitably adapted to this unique ecosystem, many of them endemic to Cajas.
