Bogotá sits on a vast savannah formed by the east-Andean mountain range at an altitude of 2600 MAMSL. Although the majority of the city is rather flat, the city limits to the East with an incredible mountain range, locally known as the Cerros Orientales, that follows Bogota’s territory lines from south to north.
The mountainous landscape not only provides a profound visual but also a considerable impact on Bogota’s weather. Although these hills are always present, they are completely utterly to 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 to offer citizens the option to discover one of the Capital’s greatest natural treasures.
On this tour, you will start the day early at the starting point, right at the edge of the city. There you will hike up until you reach a perfect lookout with a privileged view overlooking the city. Along the hike, you will learn from the expert guide about the competition between native and foreign species, the environmental concerns that Bogotá is facing, and much more. After this pleasant hike, you will return to the city safely and be dropped off at your hotel or preferred destination.
The physical demands of this hike are medium-high. We recommend taking this tour two days after your arrival to Bogotá, especially if you are not accustomed to high altitudes. Bring comfortable clothes and shoes for hiking.
Maximum altitude of this hike is 3100 MASL.
After your booking, we will request you some personal information that is mandatory in order to access the trail.
