This is one of the most visited destinations by International tourists in all of Colombia.

First, we will visit Cocora Valley, which is a beautiful place host to the world’s tallest palm trees, the wax palm (up to 70m tall or 200ft). This is the only place in the world where you can see these trees, which are approximately 200 years old and are in danger of extinction. At this point you will have a few options, a 30min horseback ride to the edge of the rapid river, or a walk of the same route, which takes about 15mins extra on foot. Or, for intermediate level hikers, there is a 4-hour hike around the mountain, which takes you to about 3000m in altitude and back down again.

Afterwards, we will go to the town of Salento and walk through the famous artisan shopping bazaar which hosts uniquely amazing local art. Here you will have time to eat lunch and later continue to the peak viewpoint of the town, which offers a fantastic scenery.

Depending on the time spent in Cocora Valley and Salento, we can make a short visit to the town of Filandia, where you can climb the observatory and stroll around the main plaza to look at the colonial architetcure that adornes the town.
