Southern Colombia Overview

Stretching from the southern edge of the Valle de Cauca to the border with Ecuador, the Southern Colombian region contains everything your imagination can conjure: high-altitude páramo plains and snowy volcanoes, flanked by mangrove-filigreed coastline to the west and sultry jungle to the east.



The beautiful colonial city Popay├ín is the gateway to some of Colombia's premier archaeological sites, Tierradentro and San Agust├şn. In between lies Parque Nacional Purac├ę and hot springs.



Further south are Pasto at the foot of smoldering Galeras volcano, and the country's second-largest lake, Laguna La Cocha with Santuario de Flora y Fauna Isla La Carota. On the Ecuadorian border is Ipiales, with nearby attractions like Santuario de Nuestra Se├▒ora de las Lajas and Cumbal.
