This the crown jewel of the Ruta Chingaza (that we'll be publishing in October). It is the route through Chingaza National Park that contains the main paramos that provides 80% of the drinking water for Bogota, a city of 8 million people.The high quality gravel road that traverses Chingaza National Park is currently closed to cyclists, but we are working with park officials to make a plan to open it up to bikepackers with permits and they are very excited to invite cyclists to travel through. The main concerns are making sure the environment is protected and the riders are safe.
