Great adventure, Lael! Where are you sleeping overnight? Are there campgrounds all around or rather wild camping? Thank you!

We climbed out of the campground in Chingaza National Park to the park gate. From there, it was a huge descent to Fomeque, where we stopped for a hot meal before continuing on to Choachi.Our partners from Conservation International had limited time, so they could not complete the entire loop. This was a more direct route back to Bogota. This also happened to be Logan Watts's 47th birthday.

@Beatriz sorry I didn't respond sooner! In Chingaza National Park there is an official campground. Otherwise in Colombia, we split the nights fairly evenly wild camping vs staying in hotels. A hard aspect to finding wild camping is that the land is mostly either densely forested or cleared into private farm fields. There is too much open space that's amenable to camping.
