Guatapé, Antioquia, Colombia
Beautiful view from the top of El Peñol mountainWe climbed more than seven hundred steps to get to this view from the top of the unique rock El Peñol, one-hour drive from Medellín, Colombia. From the top you are able to see the lake, the dam, and the beautiful picturesque town of Guarape. The hike takes approximately thirty minutes and it is quite an amazing experience.
There is a nice hotel near the rock and a cute "cruise" boat that takes you around the lake.
