It is the spot easiest to access in PNN El Cocuy for practicing parapentismo, or paragliding. Any time of the year is good for leaping off its heights and soaring like an Andean condor over the crumpled earth of this corner of Colombia. The best month, though, is in July when El Cocuy pueblo hosts a parapentismo festival.
