Hiking Bogotá’s Hills with Bogotá Bike Tours

The mists roll in.

Bogotá Bike Tours offers hikes through Bogotá’s beautiful Eastern Hills. The area has a bad reputation for muggings, and caution is necessary. But for those willing to risk it, it’s a chance to escape from reality, seemingly a world away from noisy, smoggy, crowded Bogotá. Here are some scenes from a hike to the statue of the Virgin of Guadalupe, who stands on a hilltop higher than Monserrate.

On top of the world - or at least the Eastern Hills of Bogota
