This beautiful nature walk in Parque Nacional del Agua, including two waterfalls, is a must-go, if you are in or close to Melgar, Colombia.

The best way to get there is by car. It´s about 40 minutes away from Melgar.

The ecological national park is 400 qm big, there is plenty of water, sun, pure air, peace, tranquility and a lot of fun without plastic or cement. Majestic waterfalls and many kilometers of cristal clear water are one of the principal attractions.

There is also a pool at the entrance area and a restaurant. Order your food before you are leaving for the trek and once you come back, it will be readily prepared for you.

And you really need it! :) Because the trek is quite tough, about 5 hours, walking and climbing up and down many times, over slippery rocks, through the water and the jungle and crossing a little “desert” area, where are almost no trees, just little bushes. So many kinds of landscapes are united in this gorgeous park. It´s also possible to camp there with your own tent. Ask them for more information.

The climate is always quite hot, between 30 and 35 degrees Celsius. Take plenty of water for the whole trip, little snacks, like nuts and dry fruits, sunblock, a cap and repellent with you.

Equipped with those things, you will have a great trek, including taking a bath in the big waterfall, I promise! :)
