The Chicaque Park is a charming cloud forest, rich in biodiversity and flora and an ideal place to relax and de-stress . Just 30 minutes from Bogotá you can encounter the natural landscape of the indigenous and Spanish era. Initially we will go to the park, where we descend into the rainforest and fog, in a 2 hour hike up to the " Pico del Aguila ", a natural lookout point located 2,290 meters above sea level on the edge of the Eastern Cordillera. We then arrive at the "Shelter", a hotel/restaurant, built completely of wood and with a spectacular view of the forest, for lunch. Once we finish lunch, we will walk to the " Forest Oaks" area , with trees over 300 years old and 25 meters high. Finally, we return to the "Shelter" and then to the main entrance, to go to Bogota. Depending on according the availability of time, there is the possibility to do extreme sports like " Arborismo" (up and down a tree of 25 mtrs.) or " zip-lining " (cable 300 mtrs. )
