The Essential
For safety reasons, tourists are advised to avoid this region. Nestled at the foot of the Nevado del Cumbal (4 764m), one of the most active volcanoes in the country, Cumbal is worth the trip on account of its colourful market on Saturdays, but also the admirable panoramic view it offers over its volcano and the summit of its neighbour, Volcán Chiles (4 748m).
