The wax palm in its natural ecosystem is found in la Carbonera. In fact, we will find around 600,000 palms together occupying 900 hectares of forest. This destination has become the best option for travelers passionate about living experiences far from conventional, when Salento and Cocora Valley were the main center of attraction in travelers, interest in embracing uncertainty away from large numbers of travelers increased and there, the answer began to be la Carbonera. You find 600 times more wax palms than in Cocora Valley, also to get there, you must walk one of the National Roads, which originally was the path of the Indigenous and is also called Camino Real. This path tells all the ancestral stories of the indigenous trade.

War and armed conflict were also present in this territory until a few years ago, during this trip we will also learn about the scars and transformations that remained after an unnamed war, including the conservation work carried out by the communities of this area.
