This is a perfect hike for avid hikers looking for a cultural experience. The lagoon is a very sacred place to the native culture and not an easy place to get to. The hike itself brings you up around 1,200 meters in altitude to around...More

A marvelous hike through beautiful cloud forest up to "the wall", in the paramo-forest transition. Gorgeous views, clouds and paramo scenery. The lake is magic. Very different to Villa de Leyva surroundings, and worth the visit. Consider staying in the cabins of the park one...More

We are not unexperienced as hikers but this was a tough one. A steep and slippery trail that leads you to a rather underwhelming lake after 2,5-3 hours climbing. We didn't regret doing it and felt good afterwards but do not expect great views of...More
