The best place to go up is via Sabas Nieves, Altamira. It is safe and you can see a lot of people hiking there. You can find parallel machine to work out. Up in Sabas Nieves try the ice cream

It is a wonderful hill with an interesting history, you can take the cable car and from de top, you can enjoy de Caracas City view and the other side, you can see the sea. This hill is the separation between Caracas and the sea.

This is one of the best places that you can go in Caracas, It's magic, it's pure, you have many things to do, hike, take a bath on the rivers, go to Humboldt, Galipan, the most peaceful place in our intense city.
