'The Parque Nacional de Los Nevados is home to the Volcano of Nevado Ruiz and other paramounts Santa Isabel and Tolima. The Paramounts park, inside of the Coffee Region "Eje Cafetero".

To get to the park the best is to head for Manizales first and enter the park form there. A four-wheel-drive rental vehicle is a good idea for exploring the park as is a guide: Colombians are getting serious about protecting what is left of their environment and it is difficult to acquire camping permits from the park entrance station without hiring a local escort.

The park is unique in its kind. The high altitude volcano vegetation, the lakes and the active volcanoes are absoluteley worth visiting.
