  • I had the opportunity to meet this beautiful park that was closed for territorial reasons for a while, and that has not been opened 100% in all of its paths, however enabled are available 3 ways 1 leading to the snow-covered chasms of the Ritak uwa black and white, again reaching a Cirque (mountain formation where the snow-capped mountains that form glaciers form a circle around the Central magnificent in a certain area) in the laguna grande de la sierra and the third which is directed to the pulpit of the devil, is necessary to have a p guidance or what I recommend @barakamountain where Sergio can help them for anything you need

  • We went on a family plan, we rented a house in Panqueba, a village near el Cocuy, which turned out to be very comfortable. Clean air, green landscape, the friendliness of the people, everything falls and they are the desire to return and stay more time. We were not up to the snow-covered, but took us to a vantage point where as we enjoyed the view. The climate is pleasant, is not as cold as we think. We made the trip by road, it is generally good, but there is a drive of about fifteen km which is really disastrous, what if you are traveling in a very short car can be tricky. He would return and would be me more time...

  • It is definitely one of the wonders we have in Boyaca, the beauty of this place is amazing, the way to get is long but nice since you can tour several towns but each with particular interest. Recommend a night in cabins that are close to the departure point already that this period of acclimatisation is key to hike the next day. It should do so calmly and enjoy the beautiful landscapes. At the end is beautiful as well as the feeling of greatness that produces a place so perfect.
