This river is sacred to the Muisca Indians who traditionally inhabit the territory. I want to show you the fundamental importance of this river for the department of Cundinamarca. More than ten million people depend directly or indirectly on the river.

Legend has it that the first indigenous people did not respect nature or the gods. The gods got angry with the man and unleashed their fury, that's how the entire Bogotá sheet was flooded. The river was born after a Bochica man appeased the fury of the gods. Join me on a tour of this site and learn first-hand with me a biologist, lover of birds and plants and discover the curiosities of this river. The experience is designed to be a space for awareness, sensitization and approach to nature. We have the support of the local community who defend and protect the territory. Optionally we can stop at other places along the river to Bogotá.

What To Expect

We will make a tour to the Villapinzón town hall, where a local interpreter will wait for us and we will register with the town hall to be able to access the Páramo, which is a forest reserve. We will continue our route to the first viewpoint where the Bogotá River is born. The duration of this first stage is approximately two and a half hours. Then we will make a stop at the viewpoint of the lagoon of the map which is a sketch of the map of Colombia. Then we will change to go to the otter waterfall and the bear well. This tour lasts about an hour and a half, we will see the water so pure and clean that it can be taken as a spring. We return to the town of Villapinzón and there is the option to eat something else if you want to buy something, then we go to the Tibitoc water treatment plant where we will see one of the last stages where the river is still relatively healthy.
