  1. One year ago I went on a trip to Tajumbina. It’s located near the town La Cruz, Nariño and it’s good option when you need taking a break and having contact with the nature. That day I was exciting. I got up early and I remember the day was so quite, fresh and wonderful. The trip wasn’t long and when I arrived with my cousins, we started going round all the spots. One of them was the waterfall and when I saw it for first time I couldn’t help going to swim. We were long time there, so after we had little breakfast with some rice, scrambled eggs and some coffee.
    I think, the best thing about Tajumbina is it has a small pool and hot springs. We enjoyed of their healing waters and also of a very relaxing moment. After, my cousins and I went to small place where there was volcanic mud too. It was my favorite part because I played a lot with them. Later we went to have a great lunch and the rest of the day we talked and walked until it was late. Finally, we came back home. Many people say Tajumbina is one of the most visited places in Nariño, and now I know why. I had a great time there and I’ll not doubt to go back for another good day.

    In 2008 I, my boyfriend and my mother – in – law visited Las Lajas Sanctuary in Ipiales (Nariño). When we arrived there, we could see an amazing landscape. First the outstanding sight of the sanctuary; a high church with are nice architectural building. In the main entrance there is a high bridge which is crossed by Güaitara River, besides there are some tunnels under the sanctuary. The sanctuary is built in the middle of the mountains which are covered by dense vegetation. There are many stairs to reach the main entrance but there are some paths also. In that year we went there in order to pray and ask God for our wellbeing. At the beginning we got in the church to listen the mass. Then we ate some delicious food which was brought by ourselves. Also we lighted some candles and placed them into candle area. After that we went for a stroll around the place and we saw the different religious images which are in some places along the sanctuary. On that time there was a lovely weather. So we felt relaxing. Furthermore due to the religious atmosphere we felt quite peaceful. At the end we felt satisfied indeed. Thus when you want to feel a little change in your daily come on and visit Las Lajas sanctuary in Ipiales (Nariño).

    A few months ago I went to La Cocha Lake; there is an island, La Corota. There I could see a lot of birds. They are so beautiful. Their feathers had different colors. Also, there were tall and wonderful trees. In addition, I walked along a trail where there were very spectacular flowers. I enjoyed it very much because I breathed fresh air. I saw several fish. Also, I could enjoy the landscape. I felt relaxed and pleased because I was in contact with nature. I liked it very much.

    When I feel stressed, I like to go to my aunt’s farm located in Buesaco. It is a very typical and beautiful country house. When you arrive there, you can breathe fresh air because is placed away from the town. Beside the house is between flowers and plants. The flowers I like most are jasmines because at night you can smell their perfume. In this farm you can find some fruits like oranges, tangerines, pineapples and lemons. You can find coffee plants too. I like go to pick the fruits and the other products that grow in the land. Inside the house, in the living room there is a chimney. When I go there with my friends I like stay there all night long singing and telling stories around the fire. It is the house’s place I like most. In the morning bird’s singing wake you up, that is amazing. The weather is perfect because it is not too cold neither too hot.

    Last vacation we went together to la Cocha. It is located in el Encano, Nariño. We went by bus one sunday in the morning. On the way we saw a beautiful landscape. We could see that this place has a great variety of wildlife and flora. For example we saw different kinds of fish, trees, flowers such as orquideas and a lot of birds. The first thing that we did was looking for a restaurant because we wanted to eat trucha. While they were preparing the lunch, we took a boat in order to know much better this place. We realized that the water was very cold like if it had ice. Then we arrived to kind of island called “la corota”. We felt so happy and excited because of the beauty that we found there. We went for a walk in “la corota”. The nature, the view, the big trees and the atmosphere were unbelievable. Later we were so hungry so we went for our lunch quickly. The lunch was delicious. The trucha had a good taste and it was so big. At the end we were full, satisfied and lucky for being in this place. We´ll never forget this trip.

    One year ago we went to visit “La Cocha” with some friends. It is localized in a little town called “El Encano”. It is a beautiful place to trip. La Cocha is a big lacuna and water of this lacuna is dark blue. Moreover, it is a place where we can find a lot kind of trees around this. One of them is “La Palma de Cera”. It is a very important tree in our country because it is a national tree. Also, there are interesting types of birds such as, toucans, herons, ducks, eagles, woodpeckers, etc. There are reptiles, amphibians and fish too. In the middle of the lacuna there is an island named “La Corota”. In this place we can find a lot sort of flowers. These flowers are colorful, some ones are small and some ones are big. Besides, in “La Corota” there is a small church. Next to the church there is a track that leads us to the viewpoint. From there, we can look at much of the lacuna. In our trip we took nature´s pictures, had boat rides, bought things to remember our road, and went to eat at a nice restaurant. At the moment when we arrived to “La Cocha” we felt much emotion because it was our first time in this place. We also felt relaxed and very happy because contact with nature is vital for our health and wellbeing. Finally, for this trip we wore warm clothing because the weather is too cold, but it does not matter because it is necessary to break the routine.

    Six months ago I went to Obonuko’s falls with some friends. When you arrive you can’t describe their beauty . The falls are very high. They are about 15 meters, and their water is so clean and pure. The air is so fresh that you feel like waking in the sky. The environment is totally virgin. It’s like if no one has been there before. I saw marvelous birds and radiant flowers of all colors. I had to climb over the rocks. It was a little dangerous but I did it. I took many pictures of all splendid things. I ate lunch there and I tried to be one with nature. When you are beneath the falls you can feel how the water purifies your body and soul. It’s a very nice sensation. I felt very relaxed. For one day, I could forget all my problems. So, being in Obonuko’s falls feels like to be in a paradise. It is a very nice experience that you must feel by yourself. .

    Two months ago my ex-boyfriend and I went to Cumbal, Nariño, because we wanted to visit the lake called “Laguna de la Bolsa”. It was a good experience and I hope come back. The journey took around four hours. We took a bus at 7:30 and arrived in Cumbal at 10:50. Then we had to take a motorcycle for going to the lake so, it took 20 minutes more. When we arrived at lake we were very fascinated because of wonderful view. I especially liked the sky reflect on the lake: the lake was like a mirror. At the same time, we had a great view of Cumbal volcano. Instantly we wanted to climb it, but a man told us that it takes around five hours. Moreover we knew that we needed to be prepared physically because of altitude (4764 metres above sea level). So we just walked a lot around the lake and we found beautiful things. There were animals such as cows, horses, rabbits, blue butterflies, etc. Also, we found big trees and colored flowers; red ones and blue ones captured my attention. We took some pictures to them. Furthermore, there were small boats on the shore lake. I wanted to use one of those, but we did not have much money to do it. However, there was not an inconvenient because we enjoyed everything there. I felt the fresh air of nature and the most important thing is that I felt the freedom. So I closed my eyes and handed up my arms, but instantly I knew that I had to come back to Pasto.

For example, the island of Corota, there are a variety of flora and fauna. Also find people very friendly and attentive. Delicious food as tamales of pure cheese with some sweets fruits. In the middle of the island there is a path of 500 meters through the sanctuary and leads to a lookout where you can enjoy a wonderful view. With a maximum height of 2,830 meters, La Corota is surrounded by a strip of 4 hectares of totora, a kind of reed. There are also places for recreation, food, and too for good pass. When I riding in the boat I was very scared. I dreaded being in the midst of so much water, and to see how to coming a lot of waves and the boat moved. Finally, we come back home at night.

Also, in the middle of the lake there is an island called “La Corota”. We took a boat to go to this island. Here there is a church and a lot of kind of green plants.

    Approximately six months ago with my classmates we visited Pinezaco’s cross located on the suburbs of Pasto to the exit to the north. We went as a walk for fun and integrate as a group. We look dried plants, much pasture, cows, dogs. The road was paved but very steep. We passed for very high power antenna, and finally we look at the cross that it was very big and white and it had some steps about where we could sit and rest. The place was much visited because we looked a lot of trash dumped on the floor and wood burning, as if the people had fire. We decided to rest and eat a little because it was late and we were tired, hungry and with thirsty. We started to talk about nice and hard to get there and how dirty it was already split society. I found a very pleasant experience I was very happy, I was seeing that huge cross and I was seeing my colleagues excited taking photos haha. thah good walk.

    About one year ago I went with my friends to “La Laguna Verde”. This lagoon is located within of “Volcán Azufral”. It is located approximately at 20 kilometers from Túquerres. The green color of the lagoon responds to concentrations of sulfur that is inside, the product of volcanic activity. This place is surrounded of high mountains. The approximate height is 4.000 meters. People say that you shouldn’t scream there because the lagoon hides itself.
    I and my friends went there by walking. The road is hard and rocky. We arrived very tired there but, when you are with a nice company it doesn’t matter. We carried warm clothing and a lot of food because that place is very cold. We enjoyed very much the landscapes and the fresh air far of the city. It was a nice experience for us.

We took photos in that place. We were happy to be in family. So, I liked that wonderful place. I was in a good mood, and glad.

  17. Diana Erazo says:

    sorry teacher I made a little mistake this is the correction.

    Two years ago some friends and I went to visit, a beautiful known place called “La reserva natural Azufral” .That was our first time we went there .It is a nature reserve located in the department of Nariño, 12 km away from Túquerres. Within the reserve, there are three lagoons called “La laguna Verde, laguna Negra y laguna Cristalina “and a semi-active volcano , “el volcán Azufral”. Its name is because it contains a lot of sulfur and that’s why the emerald green color in one of the lagoons. It is approximate 4.000 meters above sea level. The weather is so cold and it usually stays foggy, so you need to bring warm clothes and a lot of liquid. The most important and the biggest lagoon is the green one. It is the most visited and the most beautiful. It catch your attention as soon as you see it . Also there is some vegetation surrounded by huge mountains and there are just two kinds of animals , some birds and a specie of mammal called “Guauguau ” .It is One of the most beautiful landscapes that you can see in our region .
    You have to walk to get there because there is no another way to do it , since the road is not appropriate for another type of transport. That day, we walked for 4 hours from the town, so we were fatigued. But i am sure that you don’t mind it when you are going to meet an awesome place like this .At the moment we arrived it was raining but later the sun came. In the highest part of the area we smelled an awful odor because of the sulfur but when we descended until the lagoon it did not smell like sulfur anymore .When I was in front of the green lagoon, I felt very happy and very proud of being in that fantastic place .There, we had some snakes because all of us were very hungry and tired so we rested for a short time for later walking around the smallest rocks there were. Obviously we took some photos and we made some videos to remember the most interesting walk in our lives. Some people think that the lagoon is no secure to swim .So, some of my friends swam in the lake helped by a rope attached to a big rock nearby. I was very funny and going there was an amazing experience.
    Concluding, I can remark that it is a wonderful place to appreciate nature and to get relax because there is no noise at all .It is visited for many people from other towns, cities and countries, since this reserve has one of the most beautiful lagoons in the world.

    One year ago my family and me went to Cimarrones for first time. That is a little town near to Chachagui. When we arrive my brothers, sisters and me were very bored because my father didn’t want technology in the house, pc, mobiles, Cds player, just we had an old TV. So we got out of house. The first day my brothers and me went to “the haunted house” it was an old big house. All people got into to that place and my elder brother and me we hid to scare other and they got out running like if their lives were in danger. The next day we went to walk to know the place. We walked until Chachagui Airport was five or six hours and the night arrived. When we returned, we lost and a sister fainted and my older brother by my sister. We walked around 7 hours were the 3 o 4 o’clock of morning and my father was very worried. So at three day just we played soccer and swimming in a river. it was a good week. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2200798624007&set=a.2200794263898.136956.1368566158&type=3&theater

    In the middle of a magnificent landscape located in about 23 Km from the town of San Gabriel in the Carchi province, Ecuador is the Grotto of La Paz. It’s a rock cave formed by the Apaqui River. I went with my family there about 3 years ago. The cave has about 150 meters deep and it offers a space dedicated to religious tourism. We could see there a marble of the Virgen de la Paz. The grotto’s dark interior is impressive but not exactly heavenly. Also we could see from the cave stalactites of different colors dripping water seeping into the mountains that threaten to fall. Inside the cavern hundreds bats and little birds flitting around its darkest recesses, that’s an astonishing setting. There are plaques and photos aside of the sanctuary which looks like a nice gallery of thanksgiving. Furthermore there are a thermal spring’s spas, that according to visitors these heal diseases. Also there are hotels and restaurants nearby. In that place I took a lot of photos and I knew some people of others countries such as Bolivia, Peru, Spain and Argentina and I swan in the spas too. I felt relaxed, surprised, excited and happy. I would like to revisit there soon because that place is really a wonderful and magic nature spectacle.

        This is the paragraph.

        In the middle of a magnificent landscape located in about 23 Km from the town of San Gabriel in the Carchi province, Ecuador is the Grotto of La Paz. It’s a rock cave formed by the Apaqui River. I went there with my family about 3 years ago. The cave has about 150 meters deep and it offers a space dedicated to religious tourism. We could see there a marble of the Virgen de la Paz. The grotto’s dark interior is impressive but not exactly heavenly. Also we could see from the cave stalactites of different colors dripping water seeping into the mountains that threaten to fall. Inside the cavern hundreds of bats and little birds flitting around its darkest recesses, that’s an astonishing setting.There are plaques and photos aside of the sanctuary which looks like a nice gallery of thanksgiving. Furthermore there are a thermal spring’s spas, that according to visitors these heal diseases. Also there are hotels and restaurants nearby. In that place I took a lot of photos and I knew some people of others countries such as Bolivia, Peru, Spain and Argentina and I swan in the spas too. I felt relaxed, surprised, excited and happy. I would like to revisit there soon because that place is really a wonderful and magic natural spectacle.

    On vacations on January 7th in 2002, I went with my family to Tumaco. It is a port city and a beautiful place in the Pacific Ocean. It’s to 300 km from Pasto. Tumaco is called “La perla del pacifico” because this region found the biggest pearl in the world. It’s a warm and quite place. Day and night we enjoyed of its tropical climate. I remember the magnificent sunset and the lovely beach with its gray sand. It was fantastic. When we got there, we could know some nice tourist attractions as “El parque Colón,” it’s a little square in the center city. On weekends people always went there because around it there were a lot of stores, discos, hotels and restaurants with delicious fish. “El Puente Del Morro” it was an interesting experience because I saw a great variety of plants. Finally we went to “Las playas Del Morro.” This place is very recognized because to only few meters from the beach there is a big elevation of land. When I saw the beach and the sea for first time, it was special moment for me. It’s a fantastic view and I never will forget it. I felt very happy and relaxed.

    Approximately six months ago with my classmates we visited Pinezaco’s cross located on the suburbs of Pasto to the exit to the north. We went as a walk for fun and integrate as a group. We look dried plants, much pasture, cows, dogs. The road was paved but very steep. We passed for very high power antenna, and finally we look at the cross that it was very big and white and it had some steps about where we could sit and rest. The place was much visited because we looked a lot of trash dumped on the floor and wood burning, as if the people had fire. We decided to rest and eat a little because it was late and we were tired, hungry and with thirsty. We started to talk about nice and hard to get there and how dirty it was already split society. I found a very pleasant experience I was very happy, I was seeing that huge cross and I was seeing my colleagues excited taking photos hahaha. That good walk.

    Last February my ex-boyfriend and I went to “Laguna De La Bolsa” located in Cumbal, Nariño. It was a good experience and I hope to come back. The journey took around four hours. We took a bus at 7:30 a.m. and we arrived in Cumbal around 10:50 a.m. After this, we had to take a motorcycle and we arrived at the lake 30 minutes later. There, we had a fascinating nature view. I especially liked the sky reflect on the lagoon. This was brilliant; the lagoon was like a mirror. Also, we had a great view of Cumbal volcano from there. We wanted to climb it, but a man told us that it takes five hours. We did not do it because we did not have much time. Moreover, we needed to be prepared physically because of altitude (4.764 meters above sea level). So we just walked a lot around the lagoon and found beautiful animals for instance, cows, horses, butterflies, rabbits, etc. We took many pictures to them. There were not many flowers and trees close to lagoon. But away from this, there were some very nice big trees and colorful flowers; I liked especially the blue ones. Furthermore, there were small boats on the lake shore. Unfortunately we did not have much money to use one. However, we enjoy all. I felt a lot of tranquility in this place. So I close my eyes, handed my arms and I breathed the fresh air.

    These are some pictures:

    LAGUNA VERDE – GREEN LAKE

    Three years ago I went with my friends to the most amazing place in Nariño; it is located in Azufral Volcano 12 km west of the town of Túquerres. The trip took 3 hours by foot while I was walking the nature became so attractive, there were a lot of weird flowers and exotic bugs so we took as many photos as we can. Moreover, we had fun and we breathed healthy the air without pollution.

    The walk had many obstacles it was hard to reach the top because it was raining a lot; our clothes and shoes were covered with mud and it made us slip. However, we finally arrived to the top of the volcano and we saw La Laguna Verde (Green Lake) which is in the volcano’s crater. Its color was wonderful and unique, we were exited and we wanted to swim but unfortunately we could not due to the sulfur. Before the night falls, we made our tents and the best thing of the trip was at night because the sky cleared and we can admire a big moon reflected on the lake and the infinity beauty of the universe. I totally recommend this place, because there you can feel relaxed and you can find yourself. Be careful with the clothes, you have to take your most warm clothes because the weather is completely cold especially at night.
