The Farallones del Citará are part of the rock formation of the Western Cordillera of the Andes, and share jurisdiction with the department of Antioquia and Chocó, being the second highest geographical feature after the Paramo del Sol.

This experience is also called (El Cerro San Nicolas) is one of the most demanding routes in Antioquia, it is not suitable for everyone. We will carry for three days backpacks of at least 12 kilos, the access to water is limited, and we must carry all the food and mountain equipment.
