  • I was with my family having lunch at Nirvana. The place is beautiful I loved to see so much vegetation and butterflies. Spectacular lunch! I ate trout au gratin very delicious, my family ate trout with garlic and roasted, others filet on the mushrooms... everything was delicious. Recommended!

  • The idea is to arrive early, the book is beautiful, you can find dozens of different types of flowers and butterflies. As you're climbing the mountain you'll find trails surrounded by beautiful farmhouses. Already at the top and end of the tour there is a magnificent view of the Valle del Cauca. Be sure to visit it. Recommendations, carry a bottle of water, do not leave trash on the way, wear good shoes and comfortable clothes, below there is a restaurant which is something expensive... not to enter food, well tour vayansen and enjoy nature ;)
