El Tablón, La Chaquira, La Pelota & El Purutal

Cauca & Huila

These four sites are relatively close to each other; most people visit them as part of a horseback-riding tour, although you can also hike up here from town. Don't miss La Chaquira, with divinities carved into the mountain face. It overlooks the stunning gorge of the Río Magdalena.
