Why this activity

  • Climb the 654 steps up to the viewing platform where you can buy snacks and souvenirs
  • The large zigzag staircase appears like a giant stitch holding the split rock together
  • Enjoy the awesome view over the Guatapé reservation (which you’ll soon be kayaking across!)
  • Due to an ongoing feud concerning the ownership of the rock, the giant letters written on the rock are from when the residents of Guatapé began to paint their towns name on it. However, a large crowd from the neighbouring El Peñol managed to stop it so only the ‘G’ and part of the ‘U’ were completed
