Los Nevados National Park - Colombia

Postby myszkot » Tue Nov 02, 2010 8:41 am

Hello friends
does anybody know if it is possible to go to any summit (Ruiz, Tolima) in the Los Nevados NP? I have read somewhere that due to El Nino it is not allowed to climb any summit there...
and is it the same with Cocuy NP?
thanks for any info...
best regards from Poland

Hi Robert,

I was there last February, so I don't know the present situation. You could try to email the hotel termales del Ruiz, which is situated in the National Park. I went on a tour from Manizales (can't remember which travel agency), which ends at this hotel with hot springs, after going up the volcano to 5100m, most of our group totally underdressed, with many Colombian holidayers first time on a high mountain. Good times! The hotel is I believe also used as an acclimatisation stop, so they must know the guides in the area. Here's the link, I hope the email adresses at the bottom work:
