Colombia, situated along the Pacific Ring of Fire, features a chain of volcanoes within the Andes Mountains. The country boasts several active stratovolcanoes, including the prominent Nevado del Ruiz, Galeras, and Nevado del Huila. These volcanoes present a range of hazards, from explosive eruptions to lahars (volcanic mudflows). Past events, such as the tragic 1985 eruption of Nevado del Ruiz, emphasize the ongoing volcanic threat in the region.
