  • 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!
