“The most famous of the sacred lagoons of the pre-colombian culture”

If you have ever heard stories of El Dorado’s legend, this lagoon is the right place to meet. From the airport, to one of the main avenues of Bogotá, are called “El Dorado” due to the unimaginable quantity of gold that was found in this territory. It is said that in the Guatavita Lagoon, was discovered approximately 55 thousand pieces of gold, quartz and emeralds. Which leaves a great question… since there are no gold mines in this territory. How would this metal arrive there? This is one of the questions that you will solve in this journey.

This lagoon is considered the cradle of this legend, since it was believed that there was a place where “the natives were so rich that they bathed in gold” and indeed it was like that. This Colombian wonder demonstrates that one of the most important rituals of the pre-Colombian era in this territory, was real and was the ritual of the Cacique Guatavita. The Cacique was the chief of a Muisca community, and the name Guatavita was worn by the wisest and most respected. In what consisted this ceremony?

Meet the direct descendants of our indigenous Muiscas who will answer all your questions and learn their language and culture. You will be able to connect emotionally with the power of nature as you see the incredible landscape of the Cordillera Oriental (Eastern Ranges) of the Colombian Andes.

Let yourself be delighted with the history and beauty that the Laguna de Guatavita has for you!
