Piedras Blancas is the highest peak of Sierra de La Culata, also known as Sierra del Norte of the venezuelan Andes. It is a popular climbing destination of venezuelan mountaineers and hikers. There is a cartographical assembly on its summit. To access Piedras Blancas there are two main routes: 1.- From Valle de Mifafí, 2.- From La Toma, very near the town of Mucuchíes. The one day hike to the base of the mountain is a beautiful experience. It is wise to hire a local guide.
