This was a trip out of Bogota 30km which took 2 hours due to traffic. A lovely walk down the hillside in cloud forest on an old trade route, paved all the way (otherwise it would be very muddy). Go down from 2700m to 2100m for lunch at refuge. We caught a land rover back up the hill for $12k... More

This nature park which is quite close to Bogota is nice daytrip from Bogota. Bring your walking shoes. Because there is a lot walking involved. You can walk down to the restaurant and walk back up, or take a horse or car. The views are great and you see atruly misty forest

We slept in the Refugio, room 203. This is right next to the toilet and you can literally hear people piss and fart while you sleep. There are lots of mosquitos. For that experience it was too expensive. Otherwise, a very nice park and nice to get away from Bogota. But watch out, there are no early buses back to... More

A fantastic park to visit which is south of the city. For fit people, this is a great walk. First, you start at 2700 metres and walk down to 2000 steep in places). At the bottom, there is a restaurant with great food. This place caters for groups and there are group activities which can be relaxing or extreme. I... More

This is a natural setting for different animals. In fact I saw some animals I have never seen in Africa. There was a bird that is so big, and i was told that it signifies something to Colombians but i have forgotten. I sent about 3 hours moving round the park.

This place is absolutely amazing! It's not easy to get there, but places difficult to reach are beautiful because there isn't many people and you can find peace :) I'm going to take some time to explain how to get by public transportation, it's totally doable. My friend and I took the Transmilenio to San Mateo and we got of... More

It can be tricky to get to this place for a first time tourist in Bogotá but when you get there the rest is very easy. About one hour outside the capital, in the hillside below the Bogotá plateau this cloud forrest park offers a handful of different hikes, all less than half a day in length. The walk down... More

I was pleasantly surprised with how well organized this park is. The landscape is beautiful, trails are well marked, restaurant has many options including vegetarian, transportation to/from Transmilenio is offered, tree climbing, zip-lining, and horseback riding is optional. I was only there for a day, but camping sites, cabins, and treehouses are available for overnight lodging.
