Again, another awesome weekend at Juanita's green farm. This time we visited a beautiful cluster of lagoons that are located in the summit of the nearby mountains of the Chingaza natural park. It is a full day hike but it is not hard. Felipe (our friend and host at Juanita's farm) carefully prepared each detail of the adventure. We woke up that saturday at 7am, had breakfast (omellete-rice, fruits, yogurt, coffee, organic seeds, etc) and later we drove to the starting point of the trail. The landscape is just stunning. At noon we made a stop for lunch and recover some strength. At that point we were at 3300 meters above sea level. After some rest we moved forward to the summit. Finally we reach the highest point of the mountain (3650m). We walked around the lagoons and enjoyed that peaceful spot. We highly recommend to come to Colombia, and make a stopover at Juanita's green farm, nearby Bogota. For local people, please do not miss this place!...It's awesome. Watch some of the pics of the adventure.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Guatavita, one hour north from Bogota (public transport every 15 min), is a land full of energy and history. La Juanita, a traditional sabana farm, is located 100mt away from Tomine lake, and one and a half hours (a magnificent walk, or half an hour by car) to the Laguna de Guatavita, a volcanic lake home of the El Dorado legend. There are numerous sports and activities to be practiced around the area, including climbing at the nearby Suesca rocks, sailing at the Tomine lake, hot springs at Tenza Valley, and recognizing non touristic muisca archaeological sites. La Juanita offers basic rural accommodation, there is a double room with an attached bathroom, and a dorm with four beds to be shared with a bathroom. We offer two or three healthy meals a day, with some of the vegetables grown in our garden. There is a fireplace, huge green areas, and a very cozy atmosphere. ... more less
