Hermit of Sierra Nevada: Sustainable lifestyle or why electricity is overrated?

Colombia, Lifestyle, Nature

Sierra Nevada, located on the Carribean coast of Colombia, is considered to be the highest coastal mountains in the world. The local indigenous Kogi people claim it to be the spiritual heart of the world. One of the most spectacular glimpses of Sierra’s snow peaks you can get from a place called Cerro Kennedy – at the altitude of around 2500 m and very very early in the morning when the clouds break for just a couple of hours to unveil all the beauty. Cerro Kennedy is aproximately 8 hours walk from mountain village called Minca. We were on our way to the top, when we met a hermit, living alone in the mountains. He shared with us his unconventional ideas about life.
