A staff member from the company will pick you up at the hotel to embark on a trip to the past. The tour will take you through the north of Bogota along the Sabana to the old Muisca town of Sesquile (that means 'hot water' in the Chibcha language). From here, we go to the Lake el Cacique Guatavita. Back in pre-hispanic times, the cacique used to perform a ceremony where
he would cover his body with gold dust and immerse himself into the lake, while people threw metalwork figures as sign of worship and gratitude to the gods, particularly to the sun. The tour continues to “Guatavita La Nueva”, the new village that replaced the old one that was flooded to build the reservoir of Tomine during the second half of the twentieth century. Lunch included. At the end of the tour return to the hotel.
