Photo of the week: week 13 Cocora Valley ColombiašŸŒ“

These are wax palms, the national tree of Colombia. I went to the Cocora Valley, or el Valle de Cocora near Salento toĀ check them out.

This national park is located in the Andes and is where the palms grow most abundantly.

Unbelievably tall wax palms

 

They really are unbelievably tall, reaching as high as 60m! It was an impressive sight and the thick fog made the spectacle all the more magical.

 

I also spotted huge Andean condors gliding past.
