Rest at the top and take in the scenic views before you start descending towards the tall palm trees. The wax palm, native to these lands, grows as high as 60 m (200 ft) and represents the national tree of Colombia. The restaurant near the trout farm serves delicious local specialties.

  • It is a walk that is demanding, which can be good scenery walking in the Woods. The best is almost at the end when you see towering palms. It is free but you should go by jeep. If I remember well, it costs 3600 passage

  • An amazing place to visit. The ascent on foot is not for everyone, is tiring, but the views of the Valley from the viewpoints assert it. Wear footwear appropriate and jacket for rain, above the clouds is common and it can rain. A safety pin from Colombia!
