Hike or hop on the back of a horse and ride through lush meadows and green forests of Bosques de Cocora while listening to hummingbirds. A six-hour round trail will take you through the valley, pass waterfalls and over suspension bridges. 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.

  • You can not miss this wonderful natural place. From Salento they carry you about willys jeep, there begins the adventure, charge you 3600 pesos per person and leave from the plaza. You have to go early in the morning to explore the place, because that depends on where you choose to travel, you can be up to 7 hours in the Park. The views are breathtaking, the Palms a madness. No doubt it is an obligatory stop for all lovers of nature.

  • Very nice market in Colombian nature! We did the loop that goes through the House of hummingbirds before getting on the montana back down by the fields of Palm in 6 hours total, with several breaks. The mouth between montana and the Hummingbird House was not well sign posted, feel free to ask the guides you will come across. Provide good shoes the path is muddy (at least during the rainy season).
