Best time to visit
December to March, July and August. During these months it is usually drier and less cloudy, therefore the views are evern more spectacular
Most visitors reach the park via the cities of Manizales, Pereira or via the smaller town of Salento on the south side, through the Cocora Valley. There is no public transportation going directly to the park, so you will need to either contract a private transport, book a tour or take a jeep to the park
Los Nevados National Park is accessible all-year-round, but you should bear in mind there are two dry seasons: from December to February and June to August. The two rainy seasons go from March to May and from September to November. Also the weather can change in a second in Los Nevados: a sunny day can turn into windy and foggy one with low visibility in a short time
The beautiful Laguna del Otún is one of the park highlights, together with the ascent of Nevado del Tolima, Nevado de Santa Isabel and Nevado del Ruiz, the three snow-capped volcanoes in the park. Glaciers occupy 4% of the park, belonging to the three snow-capped volcanoes mentioned before. Countless sources of water are originated from the glaciers: the melting water give birth to the rivers that originate in the park and that conform 10 basins and 19 streams of different sizes and characteristics. The hydrographic network of the park provides water to over 2,000,000 inhabitants, and also to coffee-growers in the region
