 Lagunas de Siecha

 

It is surrounded by a rocky outcrop of glacial origin. The frailejones (type of Espeletias), scrublands and Chusquea fields (type of evergeen bamboo) flood the páramo style landscape.

The rocky summits harbor the lagoons at three stair-like levels in a grandiose mountain spectacle. The path that leads to the lagoons allows us to appreciate the silence, fog and water sources.

To climb up to Lagunas de Siecha (Siecha Lagoons), we go up Río Siecha, starting at Valle de Guasca. Another option to access it is to go a bit further south through the visitor center and the newly-opened interpretative trail. A third option is to go by the Piedras Gordas pass through the main entrance of the Chingaza National Natural Park. In any case, the route offers a magnificent and foggy mountain scenery that may also surprise the visitor due to the presence of the white-tailed deer.

The cost of the hike includes transportation and tour guide. DOES NOT include park admission fee: $ 13,500 for national citizens and $ 39,500 for foreigners. Each person must bring their lunch and hydration.

You must always be prepared for rain, cold or heat. We recommend that you bring extra clothes to change into.

They are located in the north-western sector of the Chingaza Natural Park at a height of 3,400 m.a.s.l.

Páramo de Sumapaz

It is considered the most extensive páramo in the world taking into account that this type of ecosystem is unique to a few countries in the tropical area of central and South America. The sumpaz páramo has hundreds of lagoons and steep mountains, being one of the most beautiful mountain scenarios of the Colombian oriental mountain range.
