On this very special Glamping Bogota Experience, you will first be taken to a wonderful and magical place: Siecha Lagoon. After breakfast, you will be picked up at your hotel and taken to Chingaza National Natural Park.
After hiking for about 3 hours, you will reach Siecha Lagoon. This area used to be populated by the indigenous Muisca people before the colonial times and Siecha means “Man of Water” in their language. According to several historians, there are indications that the offering ceremony of the Legend of El Dorado was actually performed in these lagoons. At the same time, historians also presume that this was not a unique ceremony. Instead, every major chiefdom held their own ceremony in a lagoon of their own territory.
When you come back down from the lagoon, your driver will be waiting to drive you to Guasca, a small town of pre-Columbian origin. Here, you will have the pleasure of enjoying a delicious traditional lunch.
As soon as you finish lunch, you will be taken to El Monte Teepee. This fabulous lodge used to be the owner’s family house. He patiently built each part of the place, and everything you’ll see in it was carefully handpicked. This lodge has an authentic family vibe that you will feel as soon as you arrive. If you’re looking for peace and tranquility, this is the perfect place for you. You will have an exquisite artisanal pizza, then spend the night here in a teepee.
The next day, you will have a delightful breakfast and free time to participate in any morning activity (at your own expense). You will have lunch (at your own expense) before your driver takes you back to your hotel in Bogotá.
