Ruta de las Nieves (Route of the Snow)
Trujillo - Mérida

Route of the Snow

The journey from Valera (Trujillo State) to Merida City or vice versa, through the National Park Sierra Nevada is another tour you may highly enjoy. If you have the time, before reaching Timotes it is well worth making a detour to see the charming Jajo village. You will not regret it. Back on the main road you will find Merida's towns Timotes and Chachopo.

Frailejón

As you drive upwards the vegetation gets scarcer and scarcer, up to a point where only Frailejon, a typical bush from the moors, survives.

After Pico El Aguila you will get to Apartaderos, where the roads to Merida, Barinas and Valera meet. If you turn left to Santo Domingo, soon after you will get to Lagoon of Mucubaji. This is another excursion that is worth considering especially on clear days. Going along the road you will find Santo Domingo well known for its trout, mushrooms and handcrafts. The place also offers excellent choices for food and lodging.

Apartaderos

Loca luz Caraballo

In Apartaderos there are hotels and inns you may also consider. In this town you will pass by La Loca Luz Caraballo, a monument to Andres Eloy Blanco's famous poem. Here native children will recite the poem for you in exchange for a small tip.

On the way down there is Llano del Hato National Astronomic Observatory where you can watch the outer space through any of four telescopes and visit the Astronomic Museum.
