What you'll do

It is a full day trip, we will leave Bogota at 7:30 in the morning from my dental clinic Armonia Dental (meeting place). We will drive for about two hours until entering Chingaza National Park. At the entrance of the park we will have a discussion of 10/15 minutes with the rangers (advices / security) We will walk a little over 5 km and will go through 3 lagoons in the middle of the paramo (Laguna Fausto, America y Siecha) Throughout the walk we will talk about the importance of these lakes, ecosystems of the park (paramo / subparamo / High Andean forest) as well as its fauna ( Spectacled bear, condor, cougar, white-tailed deer, ...) We will have a picnic on the spot and then return quietly to Bogota in the afternoon. Price of the entrance and insurance is not included in the experience price 51,500 pesos for foreigners + 4000 pesos insurance. 19 000 pesos for Colombians or foreign residents+ 4000 pesos insurance There is a limited number of people per day in the park so it is better to book in advance to be sure to get in. The walk is between 3200 and 3800 m altitude, a good physical condition is recommended. CONTACT ME BEFORE BOOKING TO BE SURE OF AVAILABILITY OR TO CREATE A GROUP WITH OTHER PEOPLE IF YOU ARE NOT 3 PEOPLE.

I live in Colombia in bogota for almost 3 years. I am French, my wife is Colombian. I love walking and discovering the surroundings of Bogota. We have a dental clinic with my wife (armonia dental), we offer sightseeing tours of incredible places combined with dental treatments. I am setting up my company as a tour operator in Bogota (Paramo Adventure) During this exerience we will visit an extraordinary place where I often come to reconnect with nature just 2 hours from Bogota by car. I have traveled to many countries of our planet and am delighted by the beauty that Colombia offers us. I wish to discover these wonders to travelers from all over the world.

Where you'll be

The Siecha lagoons are in the Chingaza National Park ubicated more than 3000 meters above sea level. The landscapes are typical of the Colombian paramos, ecosystems of the region which represent 3% of the Colombian territory and essential to its equilibrium (collect 70% of the fresh water) These lagoons were sacred places of pilgrimage and celebration of the Muiscas, Siecha meaning "man of water" or "male house" in Muisca. They used to do offerings in those lagoons.
