So close to Bogotá is the national natural park that best captures the ecosystem of the Andes.This 4 hour aprox medium difficulty hike will be accompanied by one of the guides who knows the area best, which means that plants and trails that only appear to be beautiful, seen through the eyes of ancestral knowledge become miraculous plants and trails enchanted by the wisdom of the indigenous people.
The route may vary depending on people on the path, so we may go to the lagoons of Buitrago, the orchid trail, or the path of the andean bear. Either is stunning and with a similar level of difficulty.

Chingaza National Park
After clearing the national park entrance, you will be introduced to the local guide who will be with you along the hike.

The guides, native to this region and with an in-depth knowledge of flora and fauna, will highlight fascinating aspects of the route and will tell you anecdotes related to the native cultures and traditional farming communities of the area.

The hike lasts about 4 hours and the hiking trails may vary depending on the amount of people in the Park, but either is simply stunning.. After the walk, you will return to the cabin and have a comforting agua de panela (a hot beverage made with sugar cane jaggery). Here you will have the chance of using restrooms and change to warm and dry clothes and shoes (bring a spare change of clothes because the chances of getting wet are very high).

After having close contact with nature’s vital water source, the guide and driver will take you back to your hotel or any other part of the city just in time for lunch.
