  • Nice walk to do in this valley. Not to do in tong. The upwelling along the river is very nice.

  • Go there, definitely deserves to feel GNOME comparing 30 metres tall palm trees. You can also take a nice walk on horseback if you don't feel like walking. See the review wrong about the restaurant.

  • beautiful experience we are off to go to the Park from the center of the square of salento with jeeps costs 6000 pesos after 9 km the starting point from where we depart for a long camminata.il first section you will see tall trees up to 60 m.poi the Bush becomes more sparse and arriving at the top you get to a shelter it takes about 2 hours uphill then you begin a descent through the Woods with roots and trunks and reached a crossroads for those who want to go can be reached by taking again the climb to a center where there are 5000 pesos entrance with a drink included colibri then once all parties down to the end, passage of bridges over the torrent experience not to be missed (the entire round about 6/7 hours)
