December 2019

We would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to spend a day exploring a serene and sacred spot in the Andes mountains, while learning about a precious ecosystem and pre-Colombian indigenous culture. Alejandra is an outstanding guide – friendly, informative, and clearly passionate about her work – and she partnered very well with Andres, our nature interpreter…


We very much appreciated Alejandra’s focus on conservation, sustainability, and support of local businesses. We would definitely tour with Zebra Fisgona again, and will recommend them to our friends who travel to Colombia.

Then, meet our local ambiental interpreter, who will be with us the whole time to share everything about the region, ecosystem, tradition and history of this magical place. All the interpreters we work with, are people from La Calera who found in tourism a sustainable way of living as well as a way to protect the natural resources of the region.

Listen to the story and local myths behind these old buildings. Learn about the negative impact generated by mining and how National Parks of Colombia, the community and you with your visit, are helping the region to recover from it. 


Enter the National Park of Chingaza and get ready for the hike. Before we start the hiking, we will give you some local snacks that have been carefully chosen to give you boosts of energy to enjoy this private  Chingaza National Park tour. We have two main trail options for you to choose from, However, they may vary  according to availability. All of them are extremely beautiful, the main difference is  the physical requirements.


Knowing the physical capacity and altitude resistance of you and your group, which trail would you like to do?


Cuchillas de Siecha & Lagunas de Buitrago

Why should you choose this trail? This trail is the most demanding in terms of physical resistance. However, all the effort will be rewarded with magnificent views of Chingaza National Park, it is actually our favorite hike. You will hike up and down different hills as you cross muddy paths at the heart of the paramo until you arrive at the Muiscas sacred lagoons located at the top of a mountain. Once there, you will enjoy a delicious lunch with a view you will never forget! After lunch go down hill until you reach 2 more beautiful lagoons surrounded by frailejones, an endemic species of this ecosystem, and take the last trail to go back to the car.


Lagunas de Buitrago and Mina Palacio

Why should you choose this trail?  This trail is less demanding, as you will be walking through old car trails. Nonetheless, you will enjoy marvelous sights at all times! You will reach a viewpoint of 2 important lagoons of the Muiscas and then descend to where they are located, where you will have a delicious lunch as you enjoy the beautiful landscape before you.  After this trail, jump back in the car and go to Mina Palacio, an area that was used for mining and that is recovering from it. By the way, this is where the movie “MONOS” was filmed, it is an otherworldly landscape!


Overall, Chingaza was a very important place for our ancestral indigenous community, the Muiscas. From beginning to end of this private Chingaza National Park tour you will enjoy magnificent views with great storytelling on the way. We will share with you how the Muiscas used native plants for different day to day activities or traditional remedies. Learn why the lagoons were sacred and which rituals took place in this land and more!
