An awe-inspiring road to Mirador El Domo de La Culata
Mirador El Domo de La Culata is a natural viewpoint at an elevation of 4.291m (1,4078ft) above the sea level, located in Mérida State, Venezuela. It's one of the highest roads of the country.
Tucked away in the Venezuelan Andes, within the La Culata National Park, the road to the summit is totally paved, but narrow, curvy and winding. The drive offers extraordinary views of the moorland. The viewpoint is located on the road from Pico El Aguila (also called Collado del Condor) towards Piñango.
Starting at Trans-Andean Highway, the ascent is 7.2km (4.47 miles) long. Over this distance the elevation gain is 241 meters. The average gradient is 3.34%. Eventually snowfalls occur between the months of June and September.
