Çfarë do të bësh

We will go on an ecological hike in the San Sebastien de la Castellana nature reserve, located in the municipality of Envigado in the Alto del Escobero. We will hike from 2450 meters above sea level to around 2850.

We will meet at the envigado metro station where we will take a bus to the escobero and the San Sebastián reserve. There we will take a path inside the forest in which we will take about 4-5 hours round trip.

There we will know everything about the biological diversity and the ecology of the forests of Colombia and of this beautiful andean mist forest that we will visit, deepening the knowledge of the biological diversity present in our Colombian forests and understanding how these ecosystems work and their importance.

We will also enjoy a unique view of Medellín and Envigado in the different viewpoints that we will pass during the trail, and if we are lucky enough we will be able to see the Nevado del Ruiz (snowy peaks).

We will have delicious and healthy food from local businesses while enjoying a spectacular view of the Aburra valley.

I hope that at the end of this experience you will leave understanding and loving (after seeing with your own eyes) the complex diversity of nature and culture in Colombia.

What a better way to get to know the second most biodiverse country in the world?

This is a natural reserve home to a large number of species of fauna and flora.
Here we will be able to observe different species of emblematic birds of this region of high Andean mist forest such as carriquíes, toucans, hummingbirds, tanagers and if we are lucky we will be able to observe the great quetzal. We will also observe orchids and unique trees of this Andean region.
It is a place that lends itself to the observation of fauna and flora.

This is a value for money beginner mountain training hike. 6Hours. It's at 2850metres. The trail is not as challenging like the Waterfall green connection hike. The terrain are more manageable but it is also longer. This hike is more of walking hike than climbing. You do not need to climb any branches or reach for any obscure location to be secure. It is all manageable solely on foot alone. A hiking walking stick helps a lot. The terrain consist of rocks, mud, pebbles, soil and tree debris. You will not encounter any water streams or cross any waterfalls. There are insects here. Most of them are harmless and it is nothing I've ever seen before. They get dislodged and hitchhike on your clothes. But don't worry. They're not gross at all. Most of these insects are gentle. Some are just curious about you. Alejandro and his girlfriend Catarina are very friendly guide. Both of them studied biology and are very knowledgeable about the ecosystem. The Rice ball were delicious. Mango and augacate with sour cream is the best. If you want to know more of Native Colombia ecology and their mountains. I'd recommend this hike. Also a disclaimer: you might experience altitude sickness. You might feel light headed, headache, head probing, cold and disoriented. That is altitude sickness. It happens when you ascend too fast to the mountain and your body did not have the time to adjust yet. Slow down to a stop and take a rest. Breath slowly and drink some water. This is important. You will start to feel better after 15-30mins time. And you can start the hike at your own pace. Overall I find the hike to be enjoyable. Good exercise! And a good experience if you plan to conquer other REAL mountain of Colombia at 5000m+ with glacial peak. The view and cold breeze is your reward for reaching it's peak. We spend some time up there eating and chatting.
