One of the most iconic and popular tourist stops is The Avila National Park, a mountain at 2,765 meters above sea level (9,071 ft) that rises north of the capital Caracas and separates the city from the Caribbean Sea. To reach the top you can take a cable car, which offer a wonderful landscape view of the whole city, or by hiking in a deep forest and some waterfalls. All the "Caraqueños" do this hiking as an outdoor exercising and it could take between 20 and 40 minutes to reach the first stop, depending on your physical condition.
