Gaze out over La Laguna de la Cocha, a large natural reservoir created by a glacier. With a surface area of 40.5 sq km (17.4 sq mi), the lake is the second largest in the country, and dominates the valley, neatly framed by the surrounding mountains and forest areas. Take a boat trip out to the largest of the lake's two islands to visit a wildlife sanctuary and see animals, including teals, ruddy ducks, moose, and rainbow trout.

Where to stay in Pasto

Just two hours from the border with Ecuador, Pasto represents a stop-off point for traveling business people, so you can bet on having plenty of choices when it comes to accommodations. A few older, more atmospheric hotels sit in the city's historic center, offering rooms with lots of character and various additional facilities. Simpler business-style hotels can be found farther from the center of town, usually close to the main regional highways--these are especially convenient for those wishing to explore the remoter parts of the region.
