Colombia
10. September 2013

The bicylce journey across Colombia. After resting days in Buenaventura we straight cycled into the colombian mountains..

From Buenaventura to Dagua and then to Cali. For the first time on the Panamericana in South America to Popayan. Crossing the mountains in the Parque Nacional Natural Volcán Puracé - Coconuco, Paletará to Pitalito.

The quite road to Mocoa brings us to a real demanding cycling tour: the road "El trampolin de la muerte" leads to Pasto - over Sibundoy and El Encano.

The final part is again along the Panamericana heading south via Pedregal to Ipiales. The border town to Ecuador.

Total number of pictures: 58
