The Termales La Cabaña tour offers a fascinating experience through the imposing Andes mountain range, immersing you in the astonishing páramo ecosystem. During this thrilling tour, you will explore the surroundings of Nevado del Ruiz and the region where the Armero avalanche occurred.
The hike covers 8 kilometers through the páramo, reaching maximum altitudes of 4,150 meters and averages of 3,900 meters in marshy terrain. The weather conditions are variable due to the altitude, but despite the distance, the trek does not impose an extremely demanding physical challenge.
While not considered an extremely demanding trek, it is important to note that the altitude and variable weather conditions require prior preparation. Participants should be aware of the altitude and gradually acclimate to ensure a more comfortable experience. The beauty of the landscape and panoramic views offer invaluable rewards to those who venture on this journey, making the prior physical preparation worthwhile to fully enjoy this unique nature experience.

This adventure, filled with the unparalleled natural beauty and unique landscapes of the mountain range, will push both our minds and bodies to elevated levels of demand, making the ascent to the summit an even more satisfying experience.
This tour is physically demanding, requiring prior preparation that mainly involves cardio exercises such as hiking, running, cycling, gym workouts, among others, as walking days can extend from 6 to 12 hours per day, depending on the itinerary. It is important to note that, despite the physical and mental demands, this adventure is not exclusively reserved for professional mountaineers or high-performance athletes. In fact, prior knowledge of mountaineering, climbing, or glaciers is not required. However, it is crucial to emphasize that greater physical preparation will significantly enhance the experience.
The terrains we will traverse present additional challenges, with marshy stretches and changing weather conditions. Overcoming these obstacles relies on being mentally and physically prepared and having the right equipment. Another important factor is acclimatization to altitude, especially for those coming from sea-level locations. It is recommended to spend at least two days acclimating in Salento (2,000 meters above sea level) or cities with similar altitudes. If you are coming from mid-altitude areas (800 to 1900 meters above sea level), we recommend at least one full day of acclimatization.
