El Peñol de Guatapé is travelers must when you are visiting Medellín. It is located around 86 km northeast of the city and the bus ride does not take more than 2 hours.
It is a monolith, there is no other such a strange big kind of black rock around. You have to climb up around 650 steps to get on the top of the rock (we met a guy carrying big package of soft drinks on his shoulders for the bar on the top) and have a 360 degree view all around beautiful lake (actually it is a hydroelectric dam). Yes, this magnifique strange rock rises from constructed water dam. How did the rock appear there? I haven’t done any deep scientific research, maybe it was mighty Pachamama (Mother Earth) that brought the monolith over there to push people questioning about nature power. Who knows.
