Trip Highlights
Now you have the opportunity to climb the second highest mountain in Venezuela walking by a mysterious cloud forest. You will pass through a hauntingly quiet desert called “páramo”. The climb to the top of Humboldt’s glacier is a demanding trip. Start in La Mucuy (2,000 m) in the Sierra Nevada National Park, pass the Coromoto Lake, and visit the Laguna Verde at the base of Humboldt’s and Bomplan’s Peaks. From there you will see the Bolivar Peak, the highest in Venezuela, and the Colombian Andes. Return by Laguna del Suero to relax before heading off to Mérida City. The rewards are extraordinary memories!
