Climbing the Nevado del Tolima - Climbing Ibagué - Colombia

With its snowy peak, the Nevado del Tolima is a challenge that hikers, climbing enthusiasts and adventure sports junkies should not miss. At 5,200 meters (17,060 ft), the Nevado del Tolima is one of the most difficult (but also one of the most beautiful) peaks in Colombia. The route up is steep and rocky, and it seems you are at the mercy of a downpour at any moment. In order to truly appreciate the ascent and descent of the mountain, plan for a trip of three days. Bring as much of your own equipment as possible to make the trip more economical.
