Nevados National Park

(Google Translation). The Nevados National Park is the Colombian massif with snow most visited country. Its main peaks are the Nevado del Ruiz (5.321m), the Nevado del Tolima (5.215m), through the Santa Isabel (4.965m).


In the north and center of the park is being developed (echo?) Mass tourism promoted by the central government offers many facilities for tourists, but also for the mountaineer excessive restrictions.

Los Nevados Park can not compete with the Cocuy about the snow and rock climbing (with the exception of the Nevado del Tolima, the ibaguereños say), but they do offer beautiful scenery and the chance to meet, touch and smell landscapes with active volcanism . In addition, the park is home to several beautiful lakes, including Lake Otún, the Laguna Verde and Laguna del Encanto.

A great advantage of the Park is its central location and easy access by air and by land, making possible a summit of 5,000 in 3-4 days, which in the snowy mountains of the country other is not possible.

The following items will provide basic information on access and entry to the park, hiking and describes climbing routes to Ruiz, the Santa Isabel and the Nevado del Tolima and include some items of topical interest.
