The Venezuelan Alps

Merida is a nice town in the Venezuelan mountains. However, the surrounding area within the midst of the towering Andes, can be spectacular.

Surrounding towns

Some of the little villages that are up in the Andes appear as if they come right out of a National Geographic spread. This particular town which I believe is called Mucahchies was having a festival in celebration of the black virgin.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The surrounding mountains are incredible!
  • Cons:The city itself is nothing exciting
  • In a nutshell:Go to the Andes!
