    Jena was a great guide! And it was wonderful to have a chance to see one of the tallest waterfalls in South America up close. We had extremely rainy weather and that impacted our hike, it got so muddy that we were sliding towards the end and there was a lot of cow poo on the trail. Would recommend packing extra dry clothes for a change for the ride home. Great experience to see the local farmers as well and eat with them

  • Bogota: East Hills Mountain Hike

    6. Bogota: East Hills Mountain Hike

    Bogotá sits on a vast savannah formed by the east-Andean mountain range at an altitude of 2600 meters. Although the majority of the city is rather flat, the city limits to the east include an incredible mountain range that follows Bogota’s territory lines from south to north. This mountain range is what is locally known as the East Hills. The mountainous landscape not only provides a profound visual, but has a huge impact on Bogota’s climate. Although these hills are always present, they are completely unknown for many locals and visitors.  After a big push made by the residents of some bordering neighborhoods, the local administration has made available and connected several hiking trails in order to offer Bogotans the option to discover one of Bogotá's greatest natural treasures. On this tour you will start the day early, after sunrise.
