The Cocora Valley in Comobia is home to the world’s tallest palm trees. These aren’t just any old palm trees either, these magnificent wonders are up to 137 feet tall!
The Chiribiquete massif is a vast area of selva, or rainforest, in southern Colombia on the Andean foothills. Nestled within its high-walled valleys sits a series of luxuriously green oases called “living temples” by the indigenous people who live there. They are actually not much more than single-trunked palm trees that defy what most think about palms and tower above you at heights exceeding 137 ft in some cases.
