Cocuy Things to Do: 15 reviews and 36 photos
Laguna de la Isla is another gorgeous lake on the El Cocuy circuit but one without any chance of camping due to the rocky nature of its surrounding terrain. It would however be a very nice day hike from Laguna Grande de los Verdes though it is a considerable climb even though the pass to get there is only 4200m. This is because the lake is further up from the pass en route to the much higher Sierra Pass that nears 4900m. So, be prepared for a longish day hike or be thankful you are closer to the pass than you had originally anticipated if you are continuing on around the circuit. We could not believe how long it took us to get here, five hours plus when the whole day's hike to the next lake was supposed to be only seven hours total!
