Revision as of 17:41, 25 December 2009
Los Nevados is a national park centered around some snow covered volcanic peaks; Nevado Del Ruiz, Nevado del Tolima and more. The park is run by a "concession" - Concesion Nevados. In practice this means that the park is privatised and that the goal of the park is to shuttle as many people as possible up the roads and down again.
