Coffee Region (Zona Cafetera): Explore the Cocora valley

Explore the Cocora valley
The slender trunks of the wax palm shoot up from the slopes of Colombia's coffee-growing region, reaching a height of up to 60m. The sight of these spindly giants covering the rolling hills and fertile plains of the Cocora valley is one of the highlights of the area and an iconic image of Colombia.

From the tranquil Andean village of Salento, hike into the surrounding landscape to walk amongst these towering palms.
