Great hike , will take you most of the day if you take it easy and soak up all the views. Climb up to Finca de la Montana will keep you fit , but worth it for the views and makes the trip a circuit rather than doubling back to return to the start. Total about 6 hours for the... More

To get to Valle de Cocora you first have to catch a shared Jeep from the main square in Salento. These depart at 6:10am, 7:30am, 9:30am, and 11:30am. The ride takes about 20min and the views on the way are incredible! (Stand on the back of the Jeep if you're willing/able in order to maximise the experience). You'll be dropped... More

The experience starts at the main square of Salento. Willy Jeeps will drive you to the Cocora valley. Make sure you are on the back of the Jeep otherwise you will miss the beautifull views when driving up there. Once there you will find your way very easy and you will be amazed by the views. It really is something... More

We loved the hike. A very enjoyable one with a diversity of forest, hiking along the Quindio river / stream, wobbly suspension bridges, wonderful views, close up viewing of many hummingbirds (at acaime we counted 8 different types), also saw a woodpecker and a toucan along the walk and of course the magnificent wax palms. We have done many hikes... More

I did the trek solo and with a bit of pace. It took me four hours altogether including a 10 minute rest at the hummingbird sanctuary and also at the very top before you start descending down towards the spectacular palms. It's well worth it and anybody with a bit of trekking experience will appreciate it. I think the full... More

The Cocora Valley may not impress you in photos but walking it is a different experience. This is one of the most beautiful walks we've done. Definitely a highlight of our trip to Colombia.
