RECOMMENDATIONS AND OBSERVATIONS OF THE TOUR

It must be taken into account that the walk through the stops and the ascent to the snowy peak demand a certain level of physical condition, it is best to have a minimum of training to avoid that our route is return something traumatic. The path to the snow is very well marked and signposted, let's avoid getting out of it as well as walking at night. All gates that we find must be left as is. After Cocora (towards the mountain) all the water sources are clean, so we should be able to drink from them directly without having any problems. Due to the height, the sun hits quite hard so we must wear sunscreen all the time as well as good sunglasses (preferably with UV filter), we can hurt our skin and eyes quickly. Let's wear the right footwear (preferably leather boots), tennis shoes and boots made of absorbent materials can last wet for several days. In the Páramo and Bosque it is forbidden to make bonfires. Although in most of the route there is no telephone signal, it is good to carry one, it is not known when it can help us. If we do not have the habit and we decide to go up the first day until spring or beyond, remember that there is a change in height of quite large in a single day and we will surely experience some symptoms of mountain sickness such as dizziness and vomiting, but these usually disappear in a couple of hours.

Likewise, the Trek is in circuit therefore the way back is different from the ascent, so you will have the opportunity to enjoy different landscapes throughout the tour. < / p>
