Cocora valley (Spanish: Valle de Cocora) is a valley in Colombia considered a wildlife sanctuary. The valley is located in the central Andean mountains. It has been acknowledged by the Colombian government as the sanctuary of the national symbol, the wax palm. Wikipedia

The Wax Palm tree is the tallest palm tree in the world. We treked through this beautiful landscape in a single day from the nearby small town of Salento.
