Day Trip to Chiles Volcano

Located in the Andean cordillera, in the border between Colombia and Ecuador, recognized by its indigenous roots. Its vertical walls of pure rock make it a challenge for mountaineers, at their feet and amid thousands of frailejones, steaming hot springs rise, which according to the Indians who guard it serve to cure diseases of the body and relax the soul. From its summit you can see the Cotopaxi and Cayambe volcanoes of the neighboring country of Ecuador. This activity begins at the departing point in Pasto, Nariño. We leave to the volcano at 6:00a.m., around 9:00a.m. we take some snacks just before start ascending the volcano, at 1300p.m. we stop to in order to take lunch, one hour later, at 13:00p.m. after going up and down from the volcano at  4:00p.m. we leave the volcano to finally arrive at 7:00p.m. to the departing point.
