Hike to the beautiful Paramo of Iguaque
You must be in the colonial town of Villa de Leyva to start this expedition. The guide comes to pick you up at your hotel with a private car then drive you for 45 min before reaching the departure of the trail to Iguaque Park.
Once registered at the entrance office, be ready for a hike that can be quite demanding, partly because the weather can turn very quickly. I advise being well-equipped. Alongside the trail, you will be able to observe the fauna and flora that change with the altitude and reach a unique ecosystem called paramo.
Your local guide has an in-depth knowledge of that environment. Therefore, don’t hesitate to ask him tons of questions. It will make the hike easier. 🙂
Although this journey is a bit tough, the scenery at the top is 100% worth it. You can admire the beautiful San Pedro Lake, situated at the heart of a mountainous amphitheater. Be ready to be amazed by the beautiful landscapes around.
Include this excellent day trip on your Colombia trip when traveling to Villa de Leyva if you love hiking and want to discover a paramo. This ecosystem is only present in 3 countries!
