La Colonia Tovar invita a descubrirla hasta en el mínimo detalle, toda ella es una tentación y su calidad de sitio marcado por la bondad de la naturaleza, su clima frío y nublado son la mejor excusa para conocerlo. La empresa Henry Adventure Tours complace este tipo de deseo. He aquí la crónica de su oferta.

A las 3:30 de la tarde comenzó la aventura. El estruendo de un motor nos alertó que el tour estaba a punto de empezar. Nos subimos en la camioneta y tras escuchar las instrucciones de nuestro guía, el paseo arrancó.

Cinco minutos más tarde, el chico de tan solo 20 años rompió el silencio con una breve presentación. “Mi nombre es Anthony Cáceres y hoy seré su guía y su chofer”. En ese momento comenzó lo que pareciera una clase de historia, pero con la ventaja de estar ambientada en los bellos paisajes de la Colonia Tovar.

“Vamos a empezar con la zona alta de la Colonia. Pasearemos por el monumento natural Pico Codazzi, el Parque Henry Pittier y llegaremos a una altura estimada de unos 2.100 metros sobre el nivel del mar. El paseo dura dos horas”, explicó.

En los 15 minutos iniciales conocimos la primera casa construida en la Colonia Tovar, que tiene cerca de 156 años de antigüedad.

En ese trayecto se alcanzaron a admirar huertos familiares, sembradíos de duraznos y la arquitectura de los hogares y hoteles construidos en la zona. La mayoría tiene pequeños molinos y chimeneas, y por ordenanza municipal, mantiene los colores y la estructura con las que los alemanes armaron las primeras edificaciones del lugar.

 Turismo de aventura

Seguimos subiendo y llegamos a un punto en el que una línea invisible divide a los estados Vargas y Aragua. Anthony se detuvo y dijo: “ahora vamos a bajar por unos caminos bastante inclinados, espero que nadie sufra de la tensión o del corazón”, bromeó entre risas.

Hacía bastante frío y la neblina casi no nos dejaba mirar. “Pueden empezar a gritar”, dijo, y desde entonces todos rompimos a carcajadas de los nervios y de cuando en cuando se escuchaban los gritos de algunas de las muchachas.

 Se divisaba un estrecho camino lleno de árboles y vegetación, rodamos y rodamos hasta que de repente, se acabó la vía y empezó la parte “rústica” del paseo. La camioneta brincaba sin parar, pasamos charcos y raíces enormes. Luego nos bajamos, caminamos en medio del bosque hasta que nos topamos con un árbol milenario llamado “El Cedro”, que tiene 30 metros de diámetro en su base y 50 metros de altura.

En ese momento pudimos tomar fotografías, tocar, e incluso entrar dentro del árbol. Una experiencia sin igual.

Y de sabrosura…

La segunda hora del tour fue más tranquila, pero sin duda, muy agradable para todos los presentes.

Llegamos a un parador turístico en el que nos recibieron los colonieros y nos ofrecieron desde chocolate caliente hasta la famosa cerveza Tovar, que por cierto, fue la primera cerveza artesanal elaborada en Venezuela.

Allí pudimos disfrutar del paisaje en uno de los mejores miradores del pueblo, en el que si no hay mucha neblina puede admirarse toda la Colonia. También comimos fresas con crema, compramos recuerditos y conocimos un taller artesanal.

Veinte minutos más tarde nos pusimos de nuevo en marcha y llegamos hasta la fábrica de salsas y mermeladas, Delicateses Smith, donde pudimos degustar los productos y adquirirlos a un precio inferior al del pueblo.

Cuando ya todos habíamos comprado al menos una de las deliciosas salsas de ajo, alemana o de mantequilla y perejil, nos subimos a la camioneta y rodamos otros 10 minutos hasta detenernos de nuevo, pero esta vez en la parada final, la calle Codazzi donde dos horas más temprano arrancó nuestra aventura de la mano de la empresa Henry Adventure Tours, que amablemente trasladó al equipo de Clase Turista para que conociera la parte alta de la Colonia Tovar.

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take
    a signal. Will likely be back to get more.
