The Páramo-Tour goes all the way up the Transandina road. This beautiful Venezuelan road goes along colonial towns where you might see the mountain farmers with their oxen carts tilling the fields, as well as the research and breeding station for Condors and the famous stone church of Juan Felix and Epifanía Sanchez (UNESCO culture heritage). On the highest point of the Transandina road we will find the glacier lagoon Mucubají. This landscape over 3000mts high is covered by Frailejones (Espiletien) and by some pinewood whose stony ground is mostly covered with fern and lichen. This will be the landscape along the hiking way from Laguna Mucubají to Laguna Negra (round trip 2-3 hours)

Then we’ll drive up to 4200mts to the Eagle Pass. In that odd scenery of the Páramo vegetation grow the Frailejones (Espiletien), which grow up to 3mts where you can experience a beautiful view over the endless mountains. After we drive the way back to Posada Casa Vieja
