El Dovio, a drawn town between mountains and tranquility
This is one of the northernmost towns of the Valle del Cauca, where the people’s accent is totally different. El Dovio, in indigenous language, translates "surrounded by mountains", a charming and real meaning, since the eastern slope of the Andes’ Western Mountain Range surrounds the town with its freshness, tranquility and purity.
El Dovio is one of the secret doors to come into in several wonders of the natural world, such as the ‘Serranía de los Paraguas’, a vital ecosystem at a regional level, where there is a cloud forest surrounded by birds and wild animals. The waterfall El Salto, is also part of these charms, imposing thanks to its great height and beauty. And of course, the natural pool San José, which is created by the meeting of two important rivers: Garrapatas and Dovio.
Walking through the town is a visual and spiritual therapy. To be surrounded by green mountains of vitality, under a bluish sky from which cottons fall, and to feel the spring weather brushing your skin is just a sign that life here is beautiful. In El Dovio there are no worries, the only thing that must be done is to have a good coffee, to ask about the pandebonos from the wood oven and the "subidos", made of corn, cheese and a sweet secret touch.
