The Cerro El Gobernador, also called Peña morada (violet crag) for the colour of its rock is the symbol of the inhabitants of Calderas.


This foothill is located between the moutains of the páramos del Volcán (desert land landscapes of the Andes) and the region of Merida.







If you make the Andean Bear Path – Cerro El Gobernador, you will go through the humid and cloud forests before reaching its summit dotted with frailejón (Espeletia) plants, emblematic of the Andean desert landscapes. From here, you will have an exceptional sight of Calderas landscape, the mountains and the beginning of the Venezuelan plains, Los Llanos.
