Estimated duration of the activity: approximately 7 – 8 hours.- Total distance covered by Willys jeep: approximately 90 km.- Distance covered on foot: approximately 10 km.- Difficulty: medium – high.
Rural route. We travel by Willys jeep from Pereira to Valle de Cocora, located in a rural area of the municipality of Salento (Quindío). We begin the day with a good stretch and warm-up before setting off on an interesting walk during which we are surrounded by the Colombia’s national tree, the wax palm. This walk, which can be a bit difficult due to the terrain, takes us into the dense forest. We are never far from the river, which we cross using hanging bridges, adding another touch of excitement to the day. After walking for approximately two hours, we arrive at Acaime, a private nature reserve where we are welcomed with a delicious hot drink and are able to observe a wide range of birds, particularly hummingbirds.
After a well-earned rest, we take the same path back to Valle de Cocora. We get in our vehicle and head to the lovely municipality of Salento, famous for its original architecture, which can be observed in the old colonial-style houses and the many handicraft shops. We stop for a delicious typical lunch and then wander around the picturesque streets.
