Páramo de Guatanfur 

 

In the central area of the páramo (alpine tundra) there is an extensive wetland densely populated by big frailejones (type of Espeletia) and puyas where the Río Guatanfur is born.

The extensive valley is surrounded by rocky peaks and natural buttresses that serve as a natural barrier to protect a beautiful cloud forest still inhabited by the spectacled bear. This is one of those places that have remained almost still in time and represent the most beautiful aspects of the Colombian mountains.

The cost includes transportation and tour guide: Each hiker must bring their lunch and hydration.

Always be prepared for changing weather. It is important to bring extra clothes to change into.

Located east of the Guatavita municipality and in the limits with the Machetá municipality.

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.
