the trekking was very nice and not too tired, we took 2 hours to go up to the Colibri house, and then we decided to go down the same path. Overall very nice day out but I wouldn't call it an extraordinary thing to do. The views are nice but nothing spectacular. People should do it if around still as... More

We took an early jeep from Salento's main square and hiked up to Finca Acaime with hot chocolate and humming bird feeding stations, back to the main track, and onto Finca La Montana before descending into the valley with its impressively nice palm trees.

We had a great time hiking up with path to the finca and back down. There are lots of options and loops available, so make sure you know you are on the right one! The hike had such unique views, it was well worth the incline!

We had about 6 hour hike with the most stunning views. The hike was at times very steep. It would probably be easier to start at the palm tree forest, you would then be walking down the steepest part.

Had a wonderful hike through the valley with a fantastic guide, Blaney (with Umayaku - experiencias en la naturaleza). His English was excellent and provided a wealth of information. It's possible to do this hike without a guide, but it was interesting that MANY times on the trail he was asked by other hikers for directions. We were so glad... More

We walked for some 5 hours (you can also ride a horse) and really enjoyed. The weather was great, the scenery - wow and the palms...you need to see them in person to admire how great they are. I must note that we had a great guide Mauro Pareja from the agency De Una Tours, which just added the cherry... More

It was so beautiful in this valley, that we came twice to enjoy the scenery and the hiking. But ask somebody for the right trail, the paths are not really signed and you can get lost easely!

The view is really pretty and the level of fitness required is not that high. I recomend on do the hiking with no guide- very simple and worth it.

Seeing the wax palms of Cocora is easy: take a Willy (jeep) from Salento square and in 25 minutes you'll be there, immediately seeing the wax palms. There is a round-trip hike that you can do in half a day or so, which will lead you over cute (small) bridges and a trail with a lot of mud (boots are... More

As not-experienced hikers we thought the 5 hour walk was quite tough, but doable. And the views and nature you pass through make it worth it. It's pretty diverse and once you reach the palm trees you'll have an amazing view. The humming bird sanctuary was not really our thing, but that might be us. Also, we walked the wrong... More
