Las Lagunillas - Trekking - Colombia

An easy one-day hike road trip is to Las Laguillas. The “camino” is well defined along the Río Lagunillas, a small stream flowing around copses of “frailejón” and across the plain, sculpting the ancient, rock-strewn earth into mounds and forming small crystalline lagoons across the valley. After about 45 minutes you'll arrive to the first of the magical lagoons strung together, Laguna La Pintada, backdropped by Campanilla Negra. The trail climbs through a small pass, on to three more lagoons: La Cuadrada, La Atravesada and La Parada.



Getting There

The road begins at Alto de la Cueva, one kilometer (0.6 miles) from Cabañas Guaicany. One way, the trek is 9 kilometers (5.4 miles).

Here are other activities in and around Parque Nacional Natural El Cocuy that may be of interest: Trekking, Vuelta a las Sierras / The Sierra Circuit, Sierra Nevada del Cocuy and Cueva de Cuchumba.
