In the northeast region of Colombia, in Quinchía, Risaralda, there is a dazzling hill, perfect for a hiking adventure. So get ready for this private trip to the summit of Cerro Batero. And live an unforgettable experience with one of our expert guides!

The main hiking path begins at the kilometer 5 of the Panamerican highway from Quinchía. Thereon it descends to an unpaved road that leads to the Batero community. It is here where we will find this majestic hill, home of ancestral myths and stories.

Legend goes that the summit of Cerro Batero was the home of the Xixaraca deidity, the last indigenous chief of the Currumíes. Thus, only the shamans were worthy of reaching its highest point.

The trek is highly demanding. After traversing a thick forest and climbing steep rocks and iron stairs, a three hour ascent awaits. Therefore, it is recommended to avoid climbing during the rainy season. And it is important to follow all the instructions of one of our certified guides.

From various climbing points, and especially from the summit, we’ll be able to enjoy the sceneries of Ventanas Magicas. This stunning cascades are a spectacle you cannot miss.

This hiking trip, more than a sport activity, is a true adventure to reconnect with with nature. Standing at the top of Cerro Batero will be a great reward for all your effort, with a mesmerizing 360° view of the whole area.

Don’t miss out this opportunity! Send us a request and join one of our certified guides.
