    Perfecto en el Silencio de la paz !
    Un silencio hermoso y asombroso se siente aqui, la pureza del aire y de la gente se siente apenas se tocas el suelo del pico del Aguila y el condor. A pesar de que el castellano es un idioma muy amplio, solo encuentro una palabra entre miles para descubrir lo que sentí en este lugar y es: PAZ INTERIOR. Así que si vienes solo, con familia amigos o lo que gustes recuerda y siente y observa todo lo que veras en el pico del aguila y ve como tu mente se calma ante la majestuosidad. Tambien ofrecen paseos a caballos, en el pico el condor hay una señora muy amable que ofrece golosinas, cafe, y un divino calentaito que es la bebida caliente de aguardiente que se toma en los andes. Se que esto que les dire no forma parte de ninguna parada turistica pero en el camino hay muchos hermosos pueblos Andinos y los niños de esa zona siempre anda en la calle y en los cultivos jugando hablen con ellos saludenlos son bellos y amables y si pueden obsequienle un dulce, niños al fin aman los dulces y ademas tendrán la experiencia de vida de conocer a niños diferentes de donde cada uno de los viajeros que me lee procede.

    Mágico lugar donde se admira uno de los fenómenos mas emblemáticos de los paramos , por su altura y ubicación. Las nevadas. Maravillosoe espectaculo ambiental. Mucho frio y lluvia pero es el clima q lo caracteriza cuando hay a nevada. Vale la pena ir durante todo el año, y disfrutar el paisaje , clima y dejarse sorprender por una nevada.

Great to have somewhere that's nice and cold in Venezuela. We stopped for baño break and bought some hot tea. Was cold/rainy/foggy, but who doesn't like that type of weather???

Its located in the midle of the Paramo mountains, we went on a cloudy day with little rain but people who saw the panoramas on a clear day said that its truly spectacular. Not to mention the experience you will have tasting the local andine smels and flavors.

If you're going to the city you should stop here and take a look. Have a nice walk to the church and drink a good hot chocolate.

It's the highest driving point in Venezuela (4.118 meters above sea level). Here is erected an unmistakable monument of a Cóndor where everyone stop to take pictures! Beware that on weekends it's very crowed -so try to arrange your visit on a weekday-. Tourists come here to enjoy the landscape, the cold temperatures (all year around), the foggy weather and if you're lucky enough to see the snow! Walking distance, there is a restaurant where you can indulge yourself with a tasty hot chocolate. Bathrooms are clean and well-maintained. If you are looking for a souvenir, here you can find wool items (coats, gloves, scarfs, etc) and typical brilliant sweets. In front of the restaurant, there is a small cute church in honor to Our Lady of Coromoto -Patroness of Venezuela-.

This is the highest road in Venezuela, and I bet one of the highest in the world. At 4000 meters above sea level (over 13,000 feet) some people have trouble breading.

This is at 4,000 Mts above sea level, so beware if you are prone to headaches and height sickness. Otherwise, the view is fantastic and the air is pure and fresh.

I've been here a couple of times just for the sake of visiting. There aren't many activities, but many visitors enjoy horse-back riding (trips from 8 to 90 minutes and very affordable) and some artisan shopping. There's a strip of tents along the main road that offer the conventional souvenirs (like knit hats and gloves with the word "Merida" embroidered on them), but behind that is another group of vendors who all sell hand-made artisan pieces. Go check them out to find some unique, one-of-a-kind jewelry and trinkets.

You are above 4000 metres here, and that means that it is cold and windy, and that you may suffer from altitude sickness

The top of the pass is really just tourist tat, with perhaps 30 stalls selling things to keep you warm, and places to buy hot drinks.

We were there just after it snowed on the higher surrounding peaks, and Venezuelans flocked there to see the rarity of snow, making little snowmen to sit on the bonnets of their cars for the drive down

I was more impressed by the drive up and down, than I was by the pass itself. Lovely alpine pass views of the road winding away into the distance

Not much to do or see, just a place to rest and drink a hot chocolate in the cold weather. Venezuelans have a habit to stop here, during high season, it gets crowded
