Colombia maintains the largest diversity of bird species in the world, more than 1800!

Los Nevados National Park is located in the central mountain range of the Colombian Andes, between Caldas, Risaralda, Quindío and Tolima departments. Within the park boundaries one can find three snow-covered volcanoes (Ruiz, Santa Isabel and Tolima), large expanses of paramo), forests, lakes and streams, where a diverse array of animal and plant species coexist. The park spans an area of 583 km2 (225 sq mi), with a maximum altitude of 5,321 meters (1,053 feet) above the sea level at the top of the snowed volcano of El Ruiz, and a minimum altitude of 2,600 meters (8,530 feet).

This excursion is a magical four-day trek that starts at the Cocora Valley, crosses cloud forests, climbs up to the paramo, skirts the Nevado del Tolima volcano, reaches Cañón hot springs, and finishes back at the Cocora Valley through a different route.

There, a traditional Willys jeep will take us to the beautiful Cocora Valley where we will set up our first camp. The rest of the afternoon will be given over to enjoying the landscape, taking pictures and relaxing, given that the trekking will start the next day.
