At the moorlands of the Guacheneque, near the city of Villapinzón, we find the Valley of the Lakes (Valle de las Lagunas), where the Bogotá river is born. This is a mystic place of the andean plateau full of ancestral legends and magical Muiscan rituals. From this point, the purest waters spread fertilizing the Earth and giving life to its surroundings. A very touching encounter that can tap into the sensibility and consciousness of anyone to notice the complexity and delicacy that the moorland ecosystem poses.
Duration: 1 day
We hike to the Valley of the Lakes crossing through the moorland (páramo) during 3 hours of a relatively flat terrain with moderate slopes. Then we'll go by bus until Salto de Nutria, which takes an hour to explore.
