Mountain Nature / Park
Take a tour with Sierra Nevada del Cocuy and explore the Colombian mountain range with the guidance of professional mountaineers. Adventurous climbers can tackle more than 5,000 m (16,404 ft) to reach the permanently ice-capped peaks of the mountain. Travel through tropical rainforest, high Andean forest, and snow as you engage in rock climbing, ice climbing, camping, and horseback riding. If you're not quite up for that type of challenge, the tour operator organizes other activities for families and less-experienced hikers.

  • It is definitely one of the wonders we have in Boyaca, the beauty of this place is amazing, the way to get is long but nice since you can tour several towns but each with particular interest. Recommend a night in cabins that are close to the departure point already that this period of acclimatisation is key to hike the next day. It should do so calmly and enjoy the beautiful landscapes. At the end is beautiful as well as the feeling of greatness that produces a place so perfect.

  • It is a journey that we should definitely make, road takes you through beautiful municipalities in the Department of Boyaca, the road is generally good although it has several sections in regular conditions at the end of the tour to get to el Cocuy. In the Park I recommend the trail to the Laguna Grande de la Sierra, you will find with spectacular landscapes

  • After three promotions to the sierra nevada, accompanied by the local guides and fulfilling the obligations of safety and environmental protection, is definitely one of the hidden treasures you will enjoy of colombia. Kanwara cabins give you the opportunity to get ready for the strong rise up to the glacier. IMPORTANT to follow environmental rules and messages of the elder brothers (UWA)
