We rented horses to explore Valle De Cocora. The scenery is absolutely stunning and well worth a visit, however, think twice before taking the extremely treacherous journey to the view point on horse back. The trail is covered in rocks and very steep and slippery...More

Spectacular views on this lengthy hike. We did the full loop, plus a side trip to the hummingbird house; it was a long and strenuous day of hiking. It is possible to just do a relatively short hike if that's what you want. Well worth...More

We headed to the Corcora Valley early by clinging to the back of the Willy Jeeps from Salento square (great fun in itself!) and followed the rest of the group through the blue gate on the right hand side to reach the start of the...More

One of the most magnificent landscapes I've seen so far in my life!! The tallest palmtrees are all over the valley and the whole surroundings are breathtaking!

Absolutely beautiful and breathtaking (both literally and figuratively). We did the full 6 hour hike, which was a great way to spend the day. We went clockwise starting with the valley and ending with the forest which seemed to be a slightly easier hike. Went...More

This restaurant was a real win for us. After our exploration of the Cocora Valley we stopped here for lunch on the basis that it had a big play area for our 7 year-old daughter. We sat outside in the sun while she played and...More

This was one of the most amazing days of my life. Take the red Jeeps from Salento for the 45 minute ride to Cocora Valley. You may be standing on the rear bumper unless you are there early, which is pretty cool too. But BE...More

Green Valley with a lot of palm trees. You can do a round trekking trip. It is hard work getting all the way to the top but it is worth it. Along the way you cross several suspended bridges over the river. There is mud...More

If you do the counterclockwise hike and want to do the full loop, take note: If you visit the hummingbirds and want to get back on the loop trail, do NOT follow the red arrows!! Make sure that you backtrack on the trail long enough...More

We loved the Valle de Cocora. We went out on ~9:20 Willey and made it back to Salento ~3:30. We did the full 5 hour loop, but went up the left side (more formal trail) and came down the right side (cloud canyon). The day...More

It’s save to walk without a guide, even when you’re alone. Lots of people there. The short route will take you straight to the valley. If you want to go to the colibrie house you’ll have to take the long route. The long... More

There are some options with a guide or even horsehide. The hike should not be so difficult and you can choose taking a shorter one. Will still be a very good experience
