Free Wallpaper: Wax Palms in Cocora Valley, Colombia

| April 14, 2012 | 13 Comments

I have to admit that visiting Colombia’s Valle del Cocora was one of the highlights of my trip to Colombia, no doubt about it. The clean air, green valley and spectacular wax palms result in a landscape difficult to imagine until you get there. The trek is around 3 to 4 hours long and can be easily walked without a guide, and as long as you wake up early you’ll be able to enjoy the great views before the clouds set in early in the afternoon.

    Colombia looks like the most greener place to me than any other! I was there in April this year & my goodness I was just stunned to see that! Superb beauty! Wish I get some row houses for me to stay there! 😀

    It is such a wonderful place. I had gone there a few years back and it took my breath away. It such an amazingly beautiful place. You have to go there to believe that a place like this really exists. The people are also very helpful and understanding. I really had a great time. I am planing to go there again on my next vacation.

    Wow! Its like heaven on earth. Its such a beautiful place and the way that yo have captured it is making it look all the more beautiful. Its like a paradise. A home away from home. I don’t think I would mind spending my entire life there away from the cities noise and pollution. I just want to go there and enjoy its scenic beauty and serenity.
