El Nevado Del Tolima is a stratovolcano, located on the south side of Los Nevados National Natural Park. The last major eruption took place about 3,600 years ago, and only minor eruptions have been recorded in the 19th and 20th centuries, the last occurred in 1943. At an altitude of 5,215m.s. It is the third highest volcano in Colombia. We are going to pass through an impressive landscape of páramo, one of the most beautiful and important ecosystems of the Andes, known for its water production; and with its peculiar location which is above the Andean forest line and below the permanent snow line. It is truly something magical and surprising that only those who visit it can fully experience it.
