Known for its cloudy green waters, Laguna Verde Volcan Azufral takes the spotlight as the main attraction at the semi-dormant Azufral volcano. The lake was formed in a crater, with the iron and sulphur content imparting a distinctive color. Wear proper hiking shoes to take advantage of the popular encircling trails. You can trek along the volcano's rim, and climb to the 4,070 m (13,353 ft) summit to take in the spectacular landscapes, vegetation, and wildlife.

    At about 13000 feet, this green lake is a must see. But you might want to arrive early or run the risk of not finding a good parking spot, or maybe getting trapped in place. That being said, its soooo...  more »

    You have to scroll to tuquerres, an hour and a half of grass or an hour from the international international bridge Rumichaca. You should go by car to the refuge, the route at 6 km each way. It is advisable to take mountain shoes or rubber boots or plant eras, as there are many mud above all in the rainy season. It seems to me that the hike is of moderate intensity, but worth, pu d is an amazing place with an energy that you don't believe it, you can also see the Black Lagoon on the left side. To get there it smells much sulfur, but it is not so serious. Green water color as seen in the pictures and in the shore there are hot bubbles. The predominant ecosystem is Páramo, i.e. long very cold, but highly recommended. It is a jewel of nature Colombian. I would go every time that it could. I saw an Andean Hummingbird and excited much that.

    The truth is that it is a place with an immense power. We arrived in 4 x 4 car to the refuge and then walking some two hours of ida, one hour more to go down to the lagoon. As a recommendation, arrive early, type 8 or 9 am so that touch them a good climate as the day progresses is it getting cloudy and cold. Do the walk with comfortable clothes, use CAP, Sun block (lot) and carry a diver to keep warm when you are cold, good water and some food for the journey, remember to save for the return which are another three hours of return. When one arrives to the vantage point there are two routes to go down to the lagoon, a very sloping wall with some stairs and swamp or the trail a little longer but safer, if they wish can take this alternative to climb and avoid escalation. And as I say, is a wonderful place, just up the Lake gives you a satisfaction that feeds your soul.
