Enjoy hiking through the Otun Quimbaya Flora and Fauna Sanctuary and the Cocora Valley, home to howler monkeys, hummingbirds and the tallest palm trees in the world.

Colombia is not just famous for its coffee but also for its varied geography, immense biodiversity and scenic landscapes. This hike will take you through an area of Los Nevados known for its collection of glaciated volcanoes and past the Cocora Valley.
