Chingaza National Park Hiking Tour

Highlights

  • Explore Chingaza Páramo and its stunning flora and flora.
  • Immerse yourself in old legends and history, still present in Colombian identity today.

Description

One of the lakes found in the Chingaza National Natural Park is called The Bottomless, due to the tale of Cacique of Ubaque, the indigenous chief, who after offending one of his wizards, captured one of the chief’s children and made him fill a deep hole with his tears. Studies show that the name of the park could come from the combination of the words “chim” (god), “gua” (mountain) and “za” (night) The mountain of the god of the night, given its sacred meaning in Muisca culture. An environmental guide will help you observe the native fauna and flora inhabiting Chingaza Páramo. A hydrological resource of outstanding quality worldwide, it provides 80% of the water of Bogotá. With a great number of magical lakes, stunning landscapes, and a myriad of tales and legends, its impressive fauna and flora make up essential Colombian identity today.
