Parque Nacional Puracé Things to See and Do

follow us

If you are bored of museums and churches and are ready to get out of the cities, dig out the hiking boots and head to Parque Nacional Natural Puracé. You can climb Volcán Puracé (4,640 meters/15,219 feet) or do the two-day trek around Pan de Azúcar (4,670 meters/15,318 feet) and the Cadena Volcánica de Coconuco. The pre-Hispanic Camino Natural is also an off-the-beaten track adventure. The attractions along the north road makes a great day excursion. For bird watchers, there are Andean condors and over 160 other species of birds. After days of hiking or trekking, you can soak in the hot springs in Coconuco. For those who like fishing, cast your line in Coconuco or Paletará for some of their famous rainbow trout.
