  • Although the entrance to the park has a lot of restrictions (not to say is closed given the last protest by some people) the region of El Cocuy and Guican has still plenty of things to offer, as I sha...  more »
  • It's definitely a wonderful experience for all the contact with nature and the beautiful views that you can have all the way, I visited the peak called "Pulpit of the devil" where there is a giant rock surrounded by snow, is simply spectacular and I believe that it is a unique landscape in the world, that if the rise is strong and especially on the site called "leap of the rabbit" is quite difficult as you advance an altitude of 1000 meters. in less than an hour, so you need to be prepared for a hard Walker but the more rewarding, you should go at least once in life.

  • Excelenteeee place to visit. I had opportunity for the rise in family and it is an experience full of tranquility and harmony. An espectaluar landscape when it is on top of the snow and the entire route between stones, frailejones and crystal clear lagoons.

  • Amazing national park with amazing national park with Crazy beautiful views! Sadly the park has been closed for a little over three months because the indigenous people are arguing with the government and you are not able to make it to the very top.
  • Wonderful mountain landscape. Safe and well organized
  • Great
  • sucks a lot
  • Seen from the air, the Sierra Nevada de Güicán, El Cocuy and Chita looks like a string of pearls white that shines in the hot sun of the Andes. It is the largest glacial mass of Colombia consists of more than 25 peaks ice and snow, in two ranges of approximately 25 kilometers long by 4 wide. The succession of peaks of the Park (from 4,800 to 5.330 masl) begins with white bells and continues with the sugar loaf, the Devil's pulpit, concave, Ritakuwas and Güicán, among others, forming a row that reaches the laguna Grande of the Greens. Among the 150 Lakes of the park that enrich the water supply of the Sierra, it is worth mentioning the laguna de La Plaza, which has a singular drain shaped waterfall; the Avellanal lagoon and laguna Grande de la Sierra, distinguished by its striking colour and its more than 35 hectares. The protected area also has Moors and a large strip of Andean forest and basal forest which are home to diverse species of fauna and flora.
