This hike takes place in the county of Zipacón, towards the old pebbled road that used to connect Facatativá with Cachipay and La Mesa. The route is a 1000 meters descend from Zipacón until the police station of El Ocaso. We will cross a hanging bridge over the Apulo river which we can later swim in. Here we step into two different thermal floors: cool and cold, and thus, different variety of crops can be observed. Fruits, corn, potato, beans and coffee are samples of the crops that we'll be able to appreciate. In El Zipacon a sculpture of the Zipa stands among the colonial architecture as well as the Doctrinera Chapel and the Museo del Disco. Here, tasting the native corn bread and other local desserts is a must.
