“Hike along the old path between Choachí and Bogotá.”

When you arrive to the Matarredonda
Private Reserve, you have to pay the entrance fee.
This trail follows the old stone-paved path that connected Bogotá and Choachi. It crosses two very unique ecosystems: Andean cloud forest and Paramo. We did the hike uphill, and the elevation change is quite significant. I would not suggest doing it downhill, as the path becomes very slippery when wet. This is an area that receives a lot of rainfall, so bring your rain gear with you. The hike begins relatively close to the road that goes from Bogotá to Choachi (vereda Bella Suiza) and ends at the Matarredonda
Nature Reserve (a private reserve).
