Cocora Valley

If you ask me which is my favourite spot in Colombia my answer will be without any doubt el Valle de Cocora! This is a nice day-hike through breathtaking landscapes starting from the hamlet of Cocora and crossing the cloud forest up to 2.860 meters so one needs to take it easy. The highest point is La Montaña ranger post, a nice spot for lunch with views over the mountains. It is also very common to see some hummingbirds feeding, they are so cute!


 On the way down to Cocora the views were spectacular, with the valley’s slopes full of giant wax palms up to 60 metres high. La Palma de Cera is the largest palm in the world and Colombia’s national tree. The misty hills and the blue-green light contributed to give a “touch of surrealism” to the scene,  where I felt like Alice in Wonderland crossing through this forest of giant creatures.


Back to Salento, I decided that the best way to finish this fantastic day was with a meal like this one . . . 😉
