Volcán el Soche is a small stratovolcano in northern Ecuador near the border with Colombia west of Río Chingual. A small village, La Bonita, is located on the southern side of the volcano.
The volcano has a summit caldera open towards the east. There are no historic eruptions, but a large explosive eruption has been radiocarbon dated at 7720 BC. This eruption produced a tephra layer over the NW of Columbia and formed 2 lava domes inside the caldera after the explosive phase of the eruption had ended
