Overall Score

4.4

The eastern coast of eastern Colombias narrow and long Lake Ocagnagon is home to the city of Callowna. Gardens and parks, rolling hillsides, and towering mountains with mounded tops are the main natural features of the area. The origin of the term is related to the local name Grizzly. Most citizens are involved in the tourism business and the service industry. In the summer season, it is most popular for hiking and biking excursions, boating, and small boats on the lake ice. In winter, the area attracts skiing enthusiasts, including professionals and beginners. In winter, severe frosts are rare here. Average temperature does not go below – 3.5° C. Summer is warm and there are no unbearable heat waves. The greatest number of sprinklers occur in June, when the citys rainfall washes over the city. Cologne achieved its present status in 1905, 26 years after it was founded.
