Natural Attraction in Manizales, Pereira

Nevado del Ruiz
Have you ever thought of a mountain with snow peak in a tropical country? Nevado del Ruiz (also known as 'La Mesa de Herveo') is a different experience from what you usually would expect to see in Colombia. Nevado del Ruiz is an active volcano with a height of about 4,800 meters. However, the last eruption was in the year 1985. Even though the mountain is quite high, a large part can be driven by car. The volcano is part of the 'Los Nevados National Natural Park' where you can find some other volcanos. On top are some glaciers which are about 50 meters thick. The National Park has some endangered animal species such as the mountain tapir and spectacled bear as well as some endemic birds.
