  • Everything in this region is beautiful, but the landscape does not allow one to look for another side. It is wonderful and almost secret because it is hard to get there. A place perfect to see nature in all its glory!

  • The access roads are very regular, do not go by private car, leave the truck in an urban area, otherwise it is worth going up to the bridge of Miraflores and do bungee... 1,2,3 Bungeee!

  • The Guavio reservoir is one of the main suppliers of the country's electricity, and the landscape that was modified for this work, one of the most amazing in the Department of Cundinamarca. From the municipality of Junín meeting is given with the deep canyons forming the image of the reservoir as arms. Not is can lose the view from the lookout Siatala, in the via range-Gachala, of a vertigo impressive. Or steep descent into one of the steps of the arms of the reservoir, the Farallones bridge as well as the tenebrous tunnel coiled that crosses the mountain and ends in Gachala, a small village of leisurely activity, where the attraction more immediate is to sail reservoir (no cost whenever they are not many well used public transportation which is a priority for the region's inhabitants. The rodeo of the reservoir continues in the via to Ubala where the activity mining is feel; then two tunnels that connect with the reservoir dam, the small village of Ubala and Gacheta, the commercial epicenter of the region. Go prepared for a long journey for uncovered, bends, abysses and the chance to meet this region which is not usually in typical guidebooks. The best thing: it is a very affordable plan!

  • Un Paraiso
  • A wonderful, simply beautiful place and full of peace, people are very friendly and collaborative, there are several options to stay and high-quality climate collaborates much, there are activities for tourists organized by ecogachala and Mayor promotes fairs and festivals in the reservoir as it is the nautical festival! It is recommended to not pass on the road when it is raining or there is inclement weather which has not yet been repaired because it is a route that was used to build the dam and then they are people to make it happen, but no has been able to be operated, hopefully very soon we get it back
