Description of Snowy of Ruiz Plan from Manizales or Pereira

The Wonderful Snowy Ruiz

High mountain tour

Located in the central mountain range the Nevado del Ruiz is an excellent natural destination for its ecosystem of high mountains, in which it is possible to see diverse landscapes ; from the Andean jungle with lush vegetation to the paramo with the indelible badge of the Frailejones, and Cojin plants that regulate the water cycle.

This beautiful National Park houses the most important water reserve of the Coffee Region, what makes this place a natural sanctuary, is not only the water but also its great diversity of species that can be observed; which include the moorbird, hummingbird, the snowy parakeet, the Andean condor, the mountain danta, and the puma; among other beautiful species.

This plan welcomes you with a delicious country breakfast that will give you enough energy to make the journey to the Valley of the Tombs (4,350 m.a.s.l), a place to which access is enabled, but no further up, this due to the volcanic activity of the place, and from which it is possible to observe the glacier. Later, after the descent, you will receive a delicious lunch to finish the long journey, from 6:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

El Nevado del Ruiz hace parte del Los Nevados National Natural Park and incluye otros nevados como el Nevado del Tolima, Santa Isabel, El Cisne y Quindío, los cuales están cubiertas por glaciares que han ido retirándose de manera significativa desde 1985 a causa del calentamiento global.

    I made the plan to climb the Nevado del Ruíz on July 6 with my girlfriend.

    The experience was very good, super recommended for all lovers of nature and high mountains, although you can not reach the snow because of the activity of the volcano, it is very worth it.

    Many thanks to the ColombiaTours team
