Yes, the landscape and the views are beautiful and you will have a good time hiking here. However the visit also made me feel very sad. Here is a fact no tour guide will tell you: The only reason this landscape exists like this is...More

If you love cloud forests, this is the place to see. It is beautiful to get to walk thorugh the mist and see how the fog covers it all, it can get a bit chilly and it usually rains, so be prepared. Anyway, the views...More

The hike up involved many stream crossings on rope bridges (which looked sketchy but were fine). Great views from the top. Then the hike down through the palms was just incredible. Such spectacular scenery!

When we went, the jeep pick up was no longer in the main square. We found it on a non distinct road after asking for directions several times, so be sure to ask beforehand where the pick up is. We started the hike in the...More

Colombia IS paradise. Nature. Always summer. Always flowers AND fruits. One season of fertile growth, again and again. With a vast variety of landscapes in which it is presented. The Valley of Cocora is one of those landscapes: serene. Still. The idea to turn this...More

A must see when in this region of Colombia. It is absolutely worth hiking on foot or renting a horse to ride around on. There are affordable rental places, I always go to Donde Juan B. If you wish to have a delicious bite to...More

We opted to rent horses to view the Cocora Valley and throughly enjoyed the experience. The horses were strong, healthy, well-trained, and they knew the route by heart including which rocks to avoid and the easiest ways across the rivers. It was an exhilarating ride,...More

Wow, the wax palms were definitely a highlight of my Colombian trip. However, I would not put a toddler on a horse there. My horse trips there were slightly less safe and supervised than other horse trips I've gone on in the... 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
