HOW TO GET TO LA PASTORA?
La Pastora is located in the township of La Florida, in the region of Pereira. To get to the La Florida township, we must board a ‘’Chiva’’ or transport with stairs 🚌 (as it were available transportation accessible for those tours that are so distant from the urban range). We boarded ‘’la Chiva’’ before the Ciudad Victoría Shopping Center's stop square (16th street).
The travel keeps going for around 2 hours and a half until coming to ‘’El Cedral’’ for travelers aboard ‘’La Chiva’’. During the trip, you'll be able to watch an incredible number of landscapes, and in some cases, you'll be able to see the Otún river.
After all of you have got delighted in such an exceptional place, you may arrive at El Cedral, the place where the experience starts.
HIKING TRAILS AT LA PASTORA

The road is full of sharp and dangerous stones, which makes it very troublesome for those travelers who are not familiarized with this kind of action. So, in the event that you've got climbing sticks, you may need to take them 😜.
At La Pastora you may find camping zones, so, you may have to bring all your camping stuff such as a tent, sleeping cushion, nourishment, and flashlight among other sorts of camping stuff (discretionary). Don't disregard bringing cash, given the fact that, you simply ought to pay to get to the camping zone (per person)
When you arrive at the visitor's zone to Los Chorros waterfall, you may need to walk for 40 minutes for the climbing trail, which is exceptionally confusing. In case you do not know it beautifully well, you'll take the off-base way toward the lake, and the closest house is found more than 4 hours by walking.
