Pico el Aguila Venezuela, Merida

4.0
#1 of 9 in Sightseeing in Merida
Landmark Tourist Spot
Take the mountain road up Pico el Aguila Venezuela to gain spectacular views of the surrounding landscape and enjoy the otherworldly atmosphere at this landmark point, 4,000 m (13,123 ft) above sea level. Marked by a yellow monument, on top of which sits a statue of a condor, this is the highest point any road reaches in the country, and its views are well worth the journey. Expect cold and windy condition regardless of the weather down below, and keep in mind that some visitors experience altitude sickness while exploring the area. A visit to Pico el Aguila Venezuela represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Merida trip builder to plot your vacation.

Where to stay in Merida

An established tourist destination for adventurers and extreme sports enthusiasts, Merida offers ample accommodations for its guests. The town flanks Highway 7, and accommodations spread across the neighborhoods--although the main bulk of options cluster in the eastern end of town. Choose from small, family-run posadas (guesthouses) set in old colonial-era houses, or larger purpose-built hotels. Head up the surrounding hills for outdoor adventure resorts offering a range of activities and tour booking services, as well as rooms overlooking the undulating scenery.
