Astonishing four days trip. We will be departing from Salento to go up to the Nevado Santa Isabel Summit, while enjoy the forest, moorlands and wetlands.

Los Nevados National Park is located on the central mountain range of the Colombian Andes and has an extension of 61.200 hectares, a maximum altitude of 5.321 meters (Nevado del Ruiz summit), and a minimum altitude of 2.600 meters at the Andean forests. The park is located between Caldas, Risaralda, Quindío and Tolima departments. Its wide geography features three volcanoes (Ruiz, Santa Isabel and Tolima), large paramo areas (alpine moorland), forests, lakes and rivers where many species of animals and plants live; some of theme endangered species.

This is an amazing journey through Los Nevados National Park. The trip we design for you is a beautiful four days journey starting at Cocora Valley, we will assent through the cloud forest and lagoon to finally climb to the top of Nevado Santa Isabel, and finish it in Manizales or Pereira.

The landscapes were beautiful, from the access road, across the paramo and the snowy mountains. The Otún Lake is a wonderful place to camping. The starry nights were dreamy. The guide was excellent. You can see his knowledge and respect for this place.

Thank you SAWA for this magical experience.

Amazing mountains. We were lucky to reach the Summit and see the Tolima and Ruíz snowy mountains. The weather was with us despite the wind was hitting us hard. I hope to be able to keep getting to know this territory.

No doubt I will recommend SAWA to those who want to visit this place.

Esteban Gil

The place is charming…with every new landscape you realize the cold, the tiredness and the long walks are all worthy. The guide we had was really good, very professional, but above all with a great sense of humor!

Thank you for this unforgettable experience.
