My favorite day activity in Popayn district. Nowadays the park is ruled by indiginious people and they can only allow 40 persons to climb up daily to Purace Volcano. Depends on the time of the year how challening the climbing experience will be. We did...More

We did this hike in November 2016 as a one-day trip from Popayan. It is very challenging hike, as you actually ascend 1400m in 4 hours! We are not very experienced hikers, that said, it is doable and well worth the effort. If you want...More

I recommend take a car with a local guide and explore this park during the day. It's very very beautiful! Take a lunch box and a hot tea with you. Do not forget a rain jacket and waterproof shoes.

First things first. If you want to reach the top of the volcano, you have to start very early in the morning by taking a bus that leaves the terminal in Popayan at 5:00 AM. The reason is that by 11:00 or 12:00 noon, the...More

We visited the NP Purace, but we decided not to climb the volcano, as it's steep and long hike. Instead, we did the 15km trail from Termales San Juan to condor viewing point. It's probably easier to do it with private transportation, but that option...More
