This trek is considered one of Columbia's best kept secret. The trek begins along an unpaved road along Valle Lagunillas towards Laguna La Pintada. Along this route is the beautiful view of Pan de Azucar. Once you reach Laguna La Pintada it is recommended to spend the night. Start the next day by walking through a valley to reach the first pass of the hike, El Alto de Cusiri. You will start to descend before reaching the next resting point at Laguna Grande de la Plaza. On day three hike along the eastern shore of the Laguna on solid rock. Ascent towards El Alto Con Mojon, this is where the hike becomes more challenging and a bit dangerous. Walk the passage towards El Alto los Balcones, your next campsite. The next day start by walking on the right side of the river and cross it at the end of the valley. After you trek through the El Alto el Castillo pass, you will descent into the Valle de los Coijines. The following day you will experience the highest pass of the trip, El Alto de la Sierra. Descend towards Laguna Grand de los Verdes, where you can choose to set up tent alongside the shore or inside a cave above the site. The last day of the hike is mostly along an unpaved road leading you to Cabanas Kanwara, where you can arrange transport to Guican.
