Šta ćete raditi

We will be hiking to the Siecha Lagoons conformed by three bodies of water, Américas, Fausto, and Siecha. They are located at 3.600 m.s.n.m. (11.811) feet above sea level). The hike is perfect for nature lovers, outdoor enthusiast, and hikers. This system is very important for the region because it provides water to nearby towns; it also has a very strong cultural heritage due to the Muisca Indigenous who lived in the area for years. We will take a look at the three lagoons from atop the mountain. Here, you will immerse into the Páramo ecosystem, which is unique in Colombia a place full of mysticism and energy. Also, you will learn about endemic plants that are very important for the area. The hike has a medium level of climbing, but keep in mind that you need to be in good physical condition to have a nice adventure. Not recommended for people with heart, chest, or breathing problems due to high altitude. Hiking time is about 5 hours approx.
NOTE: I recommend you to spend between 24 to 36 hours in Bogotá before going to the park so your body will acclimatize to the high altitude. As a training, you can hike up to the church on the top of the mountain known as Monserrate in downtown Bogotá.
Entry fee to the Park included $54,500 Cop for foreigners, 20,000 Cop for residents, $17,000 Cop (5 to 25 year old Residents). National Parks 2021 prices

Hi everyone,
I'm Jaime, I love outdoor activities and direct contact with the mountains and nature. I got certified in tourism in rural areas and nature tours. I volunteered as a park ranger in the national natural parks of Chingaza & El Cocuy. I got certified as a Tourist Guide and as a Widerness First Resonder (WFR) (Certificación Socorrista en Lugares Remotos). I'm also a trail runner, I enjoy it a lot due to the freedom and energy that nature produces. Come with me to experience amazing landscapes. True peace is found in nature!!!!

Fue una experiencia maravillosa. Jaime sabe mucho del tema, es un experto con todo lo referente al parque. Es una persona que estuvo muchos años colaborando con el parque y se lo conoce muy bien. Es una caminata larga con subidas y bajadas pero Jaime va a tu ritmo. Hay mucho lodo/barro por eso es importante llevar zapatillas, ropa cómoda y abrigo que se impermeable al agua. Adicional llevar unos zapatos y pantalón adicional para cambiarse. Llegar hasta el mirador fue toda una experiencia y a lo largo del camino Jaime te va contando todo lo referente al parque, a su naturaleza, animales, aves e historia del lugar.

This hike was amazing. Beautiful area, beautiful views. Chingaza NP is spectacular. We went on a Tuesday and were the only people there. Jaime was a great guide and Very conscientious of the altitude and giving us breaks. Even if you’re tired, ask Jaime to take you to the peak above the third lake. It is well worth it and doesn’t take long. I highly recommend this experience to anyone—especially if you want a break from the hustle and bustle of Bogota.

100% recommended, especially if you are a true nature lover and into hiking. You will start your journey with a very delicious breakfast on the way to chingaza, so once arrive, you are fully prepared for hiking. The place itself is really unique, but Jaime’s knowledge of the place, flora and fauna helps you to deep dive and feel the real connection with this place. Highly recommended to take a raincoat and waterproof shoes. Thanks to Jaime for such a great experience!!!

Jaime es muy buen guía. Respetuoso, atento y se preocupa por dar un buen servicio. Lastimosamente no logramos llegar a Chingaza porque había una carrera y cerraron el paso. Sin embargo, ideamos un plan B que disfruté mucho. Ante la incertidumbre mantuvo buena actitud y siempre dispuesto a escucharme.

Jaime was an excellent guide! I enjoyed learning from him about the paramo and the hike itself was majestic. The best part of booking a hike with Jaime is you do not need to worry about transportation or park entrance requirements- he takes care of everything.

A wonderful experience! Jaime is an excellent guide to the Chingaza area. He is patient with slower hikers like me. You'll definitely want to warm up with a hike up Monserrate or another high altitude peak. And take this hike s l o w. Bring clothes to layer up in and take off when it gets cold/hot!
