A walk of peace and liberation where you will learn about a very diverse paramo.
You will walk through the paramo and high Andean forest ecosystem, where we will find an ancient lagoon that was drained to extract the Muisca treasures that were found there. You will visit imposing mountains that reflect the glacial retreat that generated ravines and pipes pouring their waters to reach the Magdalena basin.
We will leave early in the morning to head towards the municipality of Guasca-Cundinamarca where our local guide will be waiting for us to take us to the beginning of the walk.
We will go through landscapes full of water, fog, some cold but contemplating the fauna and flora of the moor that is housed in the place.
We will have the possibility of seeing many birds native to these ecosystems, although some migratory ones as well, and from time to time we will have the possibility of observing the wonderful spectacled bear.
An ancient town inhabited by the indigenous Muiscas, Guasca was part of the Guatavita chiefdom, founded in the year 1600 by Don Luis Enríquez.
