This is the scenery around Guatape. The actual rock is in the middle, just past the first ridge. The rock is a really big tourist attraction and it attracts a lot of side businesses. One is horseback riding. These guys are set up as close to the rock as possible. This is from the parking lot to the rock. You already have a good view of the lake. Part way up the rock... the whole way is about 1500 stairs. They are solid poured concrete. Actually two staircases...one up and one down. This is the main view from the top.
