Backpacking Salento’s Valle De Cocora

Salento. I love you. You will too, i think. This is the spot for anyone and everyone. Nature enthusiasts cup will overflow, while the other portion of travelers will be searching for ways to stay longer. Taking the journey & hiking through the valley is a must, must do. The saying in Salento goes, “If the Wax Palm Trees don’t keep you here, the coffee will.” Actually that’s not what they say but enjoy some scenery I was able to capture.

Getting to Valle De Cocora

Getting here is the easy part, leaving is the challenging aspect. Take a Willy Jeep for 3 million COP from the Primera Parque center & 20 minutes later you are a matter of minutes from some of Colombia’s most pristine nature. Can it get any better than this? Yes, keep reading or browsing the scenery

Weather in Valle De Cocora

Like anywhere, the weather can vary and drastically alter an experience. I experienced just about every variability of weather besides snow. There was the rain that would come and go at a moments notice. Sun that shined and quickly usurped the rain. Fog that lingered on the hillsides allowing dramatic displays of color contrasts. The fog that made this constant game of peekaboo with the wax palms tree tops. All together it was a blessing to have a mix of all weather types in such a special place.

Have you been to Salento? What was your experience like?
