Cerro De Las Tres Cruces, Cali

4.2
#5 of 21 in Outdoors in Cali
Hike to the top of Cerro De Las Tres Cruces, where legend holds that a demon named Buziraco terrorized Cali with plague and famine. In 1837, two brothers carried three crosses of bamboo up the hill to ward the him off. Eventually these crosses evolved into the iron and cement giants you see today. Sundays here are busy with tradition, giving you a good opportunity to mix with the locals. Challenging at times, the hike to the top is best started early; take plenty of water. Once at the summit, you can buy refreshments and enjoy spectacular views over Cali. To visit Cerro De Las Tres Cruces and other attractions in Cali, use our Cali vacation builder app .

  • It is a place of tourist importance and that all caleño must know. The plan is to go walking for exercise, although it can also be reached by car. On weekends, it is starting to rise at about 6 AM already than the journey, for the experienced not (like me), lasts approximately 1 hour or more. It is recommended to go in group if you don't have the experience. During the week, I understand that there are groups climbing the Tuesday and Thursday night. From the different stages of the climb, you can see the city and very good pictures are accomplished. The place is guarded by the police most of the time. At the top (approx. at 1400 meters above sea level), in addition to the monument of the 3 crosses, you can enjoy spaces for exercise and eat something light like a banana cake or carrot, the traditional salad, prepared in that moment and drink fruit juices such as protein shakes.

  • Our beautiful Hill is the best pretesto to verify that this is your gym routine. If you like challenges start to visit him to reach its peak, and as a reward to observe the beautiful Cali. You can not miss it. Warning I recommend to upload it in the early hours of the morning after nine o'clock the Sun is very strong and carry hydration.

  • It is a majestic and impressive place with better and wider view of the city of Cali and surrounding areas. A pleasant experience for those who love hiking, climbing, walking, jogging, and in addition to healthy exercise surrounded by people who share the same affinity.
