Fuya Fuya forms part of a complete volcano known in its totality as Mojanda. Today the volcano Mojanda is a great cauldron of 5 km in diameter and there is in the center a lake (Karikucha or masculine lake) together with two other smaller (Yanakucha o black lake, and Warmikucha or feminine lake). The highest corresponds to the rest of the walls of the pot like the Fuya Fuya cone (4,279 m.a.s.l.) and the Yana Urku of Mojanda (4,300 m.a.s.l.) .Fuya Fuya has no remnants of native forrest but the entire mountain is covered with Paramo straw. (stepa ichu). Fuya Fuya is formed by one mountain but has two peaks that are totally seperated.
The name Fuya Fuya comes from the Kichwa Fuyu that means "cloud" and it is in relation to most mountains, dome and cone volcanoes that exist nearby, it is covered with clouds constantly. With this in mind, the Fuya Fuya mountain in reality means "cloudy" or covered with clouds.
One of the more well known is the one told about the Pucho Remaches, a family dedicated to kidnapping, killing and selling their meat as fritada, the hikers that went from Quito to Otavalo and vice versa. Equally, there is a story is about the Ñawsakucha or Blind Lake or also known as Warmikucha or Feminine Lake who, in a past era, had life and ate the people that traversed its shores.
