I went up here by horse. The park is mystical, spooky and thrilling with jaw dropping views of the Andes. I stayed in San Andres de Pisimbala which is close to “the Pyramid” and these amazing network of tombs on a different excursion. Both were...More

We explored the area with our 5 and 7 y.o. kids, who enjoyed going into the underground tombs with a flashlight. Apart from that, the nature in the area is very pretty which makes the hikes in the mountains quite pleasant.

The road less travelled will take you here, but it's definitely worth it! Tierradentro offers adventure, mystery, intrigue, and a bit of effort to get there. Depending on how much time you have, I would recommend hiking Alto de Segovia first, and looping into San...More

Tierradentro is hard to get to -- I arrived with car and driver and explored the tombs with a spanish speaking guide. You should know that currently (Jan 2018) most of the tombs in the outlying areas are not accessible because several of the access...More

I went from Bogota, roughly 13 hrs to La Plata by bus. I think the time may vary depending on road & traffic conditions. Spend the night in La Plata and have whoever seems to be in charge of the place help you find a ride... More
