Description:
The Cordillera Occidental () is one of three branches of the Andes Mountains in Colombia that divide at the Node of Pasto, extending from south to north from Nariño to the Node of Paramillo in Córdoba.

The western part of the mountain range belongs mainly to the Pacific region, with the San Juan River standing out, while the eastern part belongs mainly to the Cauca River basin. The northern part and northwestern part belong to the Atlantic Slope, with the Atrato and Sinú rivers standing out. The Cordillera Occidental is separated from the coastal Baudó Mountains by the Atrato River.

The maximum altitude of the Cordillera Occidental can be found in the Farallones de Cali at 4,100 meters over sea level.

The Patía River, which begins in the Colombian Massif, runs through the Cordillera Occidental in the start of the depression Hoz de Miamar.
