Great hiking trip

Great hiking trip. You need to visit the Casa de Collibri and should do the round hiking trail to see different styles of nature

Cars from salento to there are 1.3 usd. Pretty fast almost 30 min. Last car to come back to salento is 6pm. Be careful... More

Amazingly beautiful all-day hike, up to the butterfly reserve and then down through Bosques de Corcora. Our 9 and 11 year olds had no trouble with the all-day hike. Bring mud shoes! A highlight from our trip

From Salento there are jeeps going to the Vale every 15 minutes. Once you reach there are two options, one can go directly to the viewpoint or trek all the way there. We took the option to do the entire trek. It was not the easiest trek, wherein most of the path has been disturbed by horses and the rain... More

I'm recovering from a foot injury, so wasn't able to do the long hike. Instead, I took the Willys to the entrance, walked up the road until we hit a gate with a guy in a tent/awning, and paid 3000 pesos to wander around the valley for a bit. It was stunning! Directions (or lack thereof) can be confusing, so... More

Really beautiful, especially if you go via the wax palms at the beginning before the clouds set in. It was quite a difficult walk and took about 5 hours including breaks, but follows a very obvious path. La casa de colibri is a nice place to get a hot drink (hot chocolate recommended) and sit down and look at the... More

We think of palm trees on the beach. Well... it's time to visit the wax-palm forest of Cocora! After a short drive from the town of Salento up the beautiful valley of Cocora, at 10000ft/3000mts we start finding these tall palms. Walking the trails up the mountain provides magnificent views of the valley and the palms; and it is good... More

This national park is amazing, but with as mall baby its a bit difficult. You could go with the horses but we didn't dare. We were able to walk with our baby for about 45 mins and still see a lot of beautiful nature. Bring a baby carrier, the buggy wont work in this very rocky roads.
