Chingaza National Park near Bogota
Nevado del Ruiz
Running along the entire western coast of South America the Andes mountains split into three distinct ranges in Colombia: the Cordillera Oriental, Central and Occidental, and it is this region that concentrates the largest part of the country's population. Their valleys are also where the largest cities of Colombia - Bogotá and Medellín are located.
