Did you know that there is is a valley that is home to the world’s tallest palm trees? They grow as tall as 200 feet. You have to go through a cloud forest in order to get there.

Amazing, right?
Do you know where we need to travel to in order to see these very tall trees?
It is indeed in Colombia.
High in the Colombian Andes in Los Nevados National Natural Park, you’ll find the Valle de Cocora, a valley that’s home to the world’s tallest palm trees. These towering trees—called wax palms—grow as tall as 200 feet, and are sheltered in a protected range.
To get to Valle de Cocora, you must first embark on a six-mile hike. From the small outpost of Cocora, you’ll find a loop trail that leads into a cloud forest, where rain falls almost every day.
Colombia, unsurprisingly, is considered one of the world’s 17 “megadiverse” countries—nations that harbor the majority of the Earth’s species.
