The backbone of South America are the Andes. Compared to other southern countries like Peru or Chile the Andes in Venezuela have a tropical charme. They are covered by an eternal intense green and have different vegetation levels that goes from subtropical rainforest, Dwarf forest to Paramo. The Trasandina road in the Venezuelan Andes is well known in lots of travel books as the most beautiful Venezuelan road.

One of the most important cities is Merida, a student city also called the roof of Venezuela. It starts in Merida (1580m) and can go along the Paramo road either to Mucubaji lake (3550m) in the Sierra Nevada National park or to the Eagle pass “ Pico el Aguila “ (4018m) in the Sierra La Culata National park. A unique and amazing ride.
