Tour Detail

High mountains, forests and waters define the topography of one of the most beautiful areas of East Antioquia, the canyon of the Melcocho River and the Rio Verde de los Henaos. We will travel ancestral paths, swim in pure and crystalline waters, we will enter distant mountains and refresh ourselves with water from the overflowing mosses of the Sonsón moor.

Day 1: 17 km / 7 Hours / Grade 4 From the town of Pailania we start the road trip uncovered for 2 hours until the path of El Retiro (Cocorná). There we enter an old road which borders the river Melcocho in which we bathe in various occasions. We will arrive at El Porvenir Estate where we will be able to interact with the peasants of the area and enjoy the gastronomy of the place.


Day 2: 15 km-Grade 4 From the Vereda El Porvenir we will start by paddocks and then take a demanding ascent through gutters surrounded by rough forests to the limits with the Hoveos rioverde. There we will continue with a strong crossing until the Vereda the Tower. Later we will follow Rioverde de los Henaos to arrive at La Vereda la Playa where we will spend the second night. There we can enjoy an imposing pool.


Day 3: 19 km-Grade 5 From Vereda La Playa we will begin a demanding ascent by imposing gutters which will detract from the great history that has passed there. We can see many mules and muleteers on the way to the town of Sonson. The road is quite steep, but to measures that we climb we are rewarded with the imposing landscapes of rioverde. We will have all the time before our eyes the moor of Sonsón with one of its highest points, the nose of La Vieja, an imposing rock formation that exceeds 2800 masl. After an ascent through the most imposing and beautiful roads of eastern Antioquia we will arrive at the paramo at 2733 msnm from there we will continue by unpaved road until the path Manzanares (Sonsón) where we will take a transport to the town.
