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.
