Merida, Venezuela

Surrounded by Venezuela’s highest snow-capped peaks, the lively university town of Mérida is at the centre of Venezuela’s Andean region.

It is a pleasant city with a gentle, friendly atmosphere, steep streets and some enchanting colonial buildings.

The surrounding countryside is dotted with small, traditional villages where life still proceeds at the gradual pace of a climbing donkey, eking a living from the sheer mountain slopes, as well as glacial lakes, highland moors and tropical forest.

For spectacular views of the northern Andes, the world’s longest - and highest - cable-car reaches up from the city to high mountain trails in crystal-clear air.
