Fortunately, the weather favored us; this time there was no rain, no hail, but a spectacular clear sky until late afternoon. In a holiday season, like this one, it is common to observe an important concentration of tourists, some in comfortable cars or couples in high-displacement bikes. Therefore, it still amazes us to see some crazy people arrive by bicycle. It is fun to appreciate how they observe you and even approach you as if you were a being from another planet. Enjoy the landscape until you reach the site can be more rewarding than the site itself, unless it has recently snowed. If you are acclimated to exercise at high elevations, a trip to the picturesque town of Piñango is a fantastic option. Also, if you like hiking, you can do from there spectacular routes through the Sierra de La Culata National Park. It is highly recommended to protect yourself from the low temperatures in a tropical environment and the wind chill effect.

We got there when the peak was covered by fog and it was really cold. After about 10 minutes, the fog went away and you could see the beautiful road below and hills.

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.
