The amazing wax palms are the main interesting feature and nice hikes into the area. This valley eats into the western edge of Los Nevados National Park. The most popular walk is a hike of two hours or so to Reserva Natural Acaime. At Acaime you can buy beverages and see the Hummingbirds in action which makes an awesome photo opportunity as if there are any shortage of these on your hike through a most spectacular scenery. The local farmers often have to tend very steep inclines and they farm among other things coffee, bananas and bamboo that they use for construction.
