Route description

After spending a night under the sky of Ukuku Rural Lodge in Juntas, we will begin the trekking through the mountains of the Combeima Canyon.

It will be a journey of approximately six hours, learning about the path of Humboldt through these mountains. We will spend the night in the San Juan stream valley and there we will do some experiments as this German scientist did in his time.

After a night of learning in the camping, we will head to the Machín volcano, considered one of the most active volcanoes in Colombian geography. A vehicle will pick us up there to take us to the Toche hot springs and then to the Las Cruces farm, where Humboldt spent the night in 1801.

On the last day, we will venture into a unique forest in the world, the Wax Palm Forest, the National Tree of Colombia. We will learn firsthand about the ecological dynamics that exist in them, as they are considered the only forests with a double canopy. View map
