Want to climb Peak Mogoton? Want to reach the highest point of Nicaragua?


Welcome to the tourist paradise - Northern Nicaragua - the Land of Mountains, Mystery and Legends


North and northwest of Managua, our capital, lies the mountain region of Nicaragua. Pine forest, cedars and precious wood trees change at a higher altitude into cloud forest zone with moderate climate. Trees there are richly covered with mosses, ferns and orchids, typical to that zone.


Northern Nicaragua includes departments of Matagalpa, Jinotega, Esteli, Madriz and Nueva Segovia and is located on highlands formed by plateaus lying between 2,000 and 7,000 ft above sea level. Northern region enjoys the richest biodiversity in Nicaragua and represents nation's premier potential for growing coffee, vegetables, basic grains and tobacco. Closer to country's northern border formed by majestic river Rio Coco, the highland plateaus change into mountain valleys that preserve the treasures of pine, cedar, oak and mahoganie forests, and hold generous deposits of precious stones and minerals.


Nueva Segovia is 140 miles away from the capital and has 12 municipalities (Mozonte, San Fernando, Ciudad Antigua, Jicaro, Jalapa, Murra, Quilali, Wiwili, Dipilto, Santa Maria, Macuelizo and Ocotal, the administrative center of Nueva Segovia). Nueva Segovia is characterized by its mild climate, pine forests and forests of precious wood trees, diverse artisan arts, and indigenous communities with their rich customs and traditions. It also gets Nicaraguan third oldest colonial city founded by Spaniards in 1610. The principal economic activities in Nueva Segovia are cultivation of coffee, cattle breeding and basic grains growing.




Our department is where Nicaraguan tallest mountains are found. Peak Mogoton, country's highest point, rises 6,913 ft above sea level (2,107 m).
