The Cocora valley hike is probably the most spectacular I've been on. You can get to the top mountain by either a gravel road or a rough path. If you do the rou d trip, It's around 12 km. There are often muddy spots. The...More

We took the jeeps and our group only did the 2-3 hour hike but just lovely. If i were traveling on our own, I would have taken 730 Jeep and bag lunch and done the longer hike with hummingbird reserve etc.

It was a great outdoors family reunion, this natural wonder has the tallest palm tree of Colombia, it is a valley sorrounded by mountains, and waterfalls.
