Las Pailas is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 4.577m (15,016ft) above the sea level, located in the Merida región, in the Andes of Venezuela.
Located within the Sierra de la Culata National Park, the gravel road to the summit is bumped. It is subject to winter snowfalls with such a high summit altitude, and it can be closed anytime when the access is not cleared of snow. 4wd vehicle required. After rain, even a single rainfall, conditions of the road can be challenging. Watch out for sudden loose-gravel breaks. Proper preparation is essential to having a safe, enjoyable trip on this road.
