The Colombian Massif also called Nudo de. Almaguer, is a mountain range covering the departments of Cauca, Huila and Nariño. The massif contains 362 high mountain lagoons, 13 alpine tundra ecosystems and several other ecosystems rich in flora and fauna. Very few people have traversed the mountains of this region because it is covered by rugged terrain and an impenetrable and cold environment, both of which are natural guardian preserving the water sources that is the water source for half of Colombia before emptying into the sea.
