The walk begins from calle 7 where there is an opening with some steps leading up yo the main trail. The walk is steep but winds up with a well laid out path initially, marked with the stations of the cross along the way. The ground conditions do then change to a more uneven and rocky surface and in certain weather conditions could get a bit muddy/ slippery. There are several viewing points to stop at on the way up. Once at rhe very top you have a view towards the town of Jerico,but this is not what you have climbed up for. You will be rewarded at the top if you continue walking across to the other side of the hill following the path around. You will see another viewing platform sign posted for one of the most spectacular views you will ever see towards las nubes. A total surprise, I stayed for an hour taking it all in. Definitely worth it!

I went up on the first cable car of the morning with a party of 5. They stayed adjacent to the cable car station so I walked for several hours on my own without seeing a soul. The views were wondrous and the flora delightful. There were lots of butterflies but not as many birds as I had hoped to see. It was a delightful walk on well maintained and gentle paths - perfect for an oldy like me!

Cerro Las Nubes or Parque Natural Las Nubes both describe the top of the highest hill next to the town of Jericó. It is most easily accessed from the teleférico (cable car) which starts on Morro El Salvador (the hill with the Jesus statue) and goes up to Cerro Las Nubes. The cable car costs COP $8000. There is a restaurant next to the cable car terminus. The park has some trails along the top of the ridge with great views. None of the trails are marked, and there is no map, but you are unlikely to get lost. I think it is the best thing to do in Jericó.

In November there were huge mudslides and it was impossible to find the trail through the mud. I’m back now in mid January and made it half way. From the alter up here the trail is too rough for me. See the photo.

We heard a rumor about Cerro Las Nubes, but information on how to get there was a little sparse. With the cable no longer working, a hike is in order.
TO GET THERE: From the main plaza, go up the 80 steps by the RapiYa. At the top keep going straight ahead (Carrera 6) until you reach the gate and stone path at the end. Climb along the path and religious statues until you get to the wooden bridge. Just before the bridge, by the bench, you will veer off to the left and begin a steeper climb along a worn, dirt path. Keep to this path and you will be sure to reach the Cerro Las Nubes. It was a great hike; nothing too strenuous but a bit of a work out in a few places for sure. The views are incredible. We were on a ridge in the park with fog on one side and clear valley views on the other. Very surreal. Take along water and snacks, but please take out any garbage with you. I would not recommend being on the dirt trail during rainy or wet weather as it could become very hazardous.

It does not run every day. If there are not enough tourists, it's closed. The walk up to the terminal--through the Botanic Gardens--is scenic. Hence the three stars. Oddly enough, the snack shop at the terminal was open & we had a nice visit with older men in charge.

Hiking to Las Nubes is definitely a must if you are in Jericò. The way up may be a bit though, but the view from the top is breathtaking. From the main square, it takes a bit less than two hours and on the top is possible to camp. There are more hikes that start from Las Nubes, we didn’t have the chance to do them. The day we hiked to Las Nubes was cloudy, but we loved it anyway, definitely better than a crazy hot day!

Take a moment to enjoy nature and the view to Rio Cauca and all surrounding mountains such as Pico de la Tusa and the Farallones.

It was great hiking to Las Nubes then wandering around the area. There are many different paths there. At Sunset, it has beautiful coloured sky.

The views of Cerro Tusa, Cerro Bravo, Rio Cauca, Jericó town, and all of Southwest Antioquia are fantastic, even better than from the top of other nearby mountains like Cerro Tusa.

Our friend Jorge, who owns Las Cometas Hostel in town, recommends coming up for the sunsets. He says they're out of this world.

Otherwise, I'd recommend doing a loop hike up the hill, along the ridge, then back down "Los Aguacates." If you're interested, we published all the info in our extensive travel guide to Jericó. Search, "unconventional route jerico guide" on google to find it.
