    You’ll have a paved climb next, before the route changes to gravel roads that lead to Laguna Guatavita, one of the many sacred lakes for the Muisca people and the basis for the Legend of El Dorado. If you are interested, add a day, camp nearby, and have a tour. There's also a restaurant nearby and vendors at the lake entrance.From Lake Guatavita, you’ll have a long and hilly ride over beautiful foothills flanked by the high páramos to the east as you draw closer to Chingaza.
    Guasca makes a good resupply stop with a grocery store and some great restaurants.
    You can spend the night in Guasca, but making it to the Chingaza campground before the 4pm deadline would be difficult. For that reason, this day ends in Buenavista. That said, Buenavista isn’t really a town, and there are only a few options for lodging.
