From Valledupar, travelers can visit the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta National Nature Park, home to the Tayrona civilization and to 30,000 indigenous people of Kogi, Arhuaco, Kankuamo, and Wiwa ethnicities. This protected area is also home to the two highest mountains in Colombia, the snowy peaks of Colón and Bolívar (3.5 and 3.4 miles above sea level, respectively).
