  • The best way of knowing them Hills is with an agency. Make this trip on your own is more expensive and difficult. Inírida still is a place remote and not have access land or many tourists. You must first reach Inirida, there are flights by Satena from Bogotá and Villavicencio. If you have a Chair on the right side of the plane of ida, will see the hills in the distance. After 2-3 hours in boat from Inirida (depends of the boat) one arrives to the hills of Mavecure. On one side of the hills is the backwater and the other community the community of deer. We stayed in the deer, where indigenous people speak Spanish and although they are a little shy, friendly. We got Mavecure and the view is incredible. There is that take was the time of enjoying the show. I recommend to wear boots with rubber soles, it normally rains, and climbing the rocks become very slippery. From October to April is summer, there will be beaches and can camp. From May to September is winter and the river rises, so there will be no beaches and landscape changes. Enjoy the visit, rarely will see something similar.
