NAME OF THE ROUTE: BETWEEN PALMS AND FRAILEJONES
‘Between Palms and Frailejones’ is our ultimate 2-day circuit. An adventure akin to the botanical expeditions of the 19th Century the route has an embarrassment of natural riches to discover. Starting at an altitude of 2,390 meters, in the Cocora Valley, find yourself dwarfed by the wax palm giants before passing through different ecosystem after ecosystem before reaching the unique and delicate Paramo, at 3,750 meters. Here, in the Andean highlands of the Central Colombian mountain range, we pay homage to the special and endangered Frailejón, first mentioned by the botanist Alexander Von Humboldt in 1801.
