        Top Descriptions

        This hike is a challenging one, mainly due to the high altitude, marshy ground and wet and foggy conditions. Don’t let that put you off though; the Ocetá Páramo is absolutely worth experiencing – especially if you have any interest in high altitude flora. The bizarre landscape is certainly picturesque and unforgettable, and there ate some ancient Muisca carvings here too. There truly are few places in the word quite like it. – Daniel

        Top Tips

        If you’re on a budget and don’t want to hire a guide from either or your guesthouse in , it is possible to explore this area without one. Don’t go too deep though, otherwise you’ll be certain to get lost, especially with how quickly the fog rolls in.
        Expect drizzly and marshy conditions, so boots are almost mandatory. Bring sufficient snacks and weatherproof gear and you’ll be fine.
        You may feel some effects of altitude sickness such as nausea or headaches. Just take it easy as you go, stay well hydrated and fed, and don’t forget to take photos of this amazing landscape!

                Top Tips

                This hike is run by the for a very reasonable UGX15,000 per person, which includes the services of a friendly and knowledgeable guide.
                You could try to do this hike unguided, but you would be mostly following roads instead of taking beautiful rural paths through the local villages (and stopping at viewpoints of three lakes along the way). Plus, you would probably be charged the same amount upon arriving at the falls anyway.
                The sun can be pretty strong on this hike, so do pack plenty of sun cream and a hat if it’s a clear day. Also expect a pretty steep down and up at the itself.
