Overview

This loop is made up of a dirt fire road most of the time, with nice descents and some very steep climbs. And don't forget the landscape! The views of the lake and the tropical vegetation make it a must-see.

Description

We started at the beautiful town of Guatavita, a historical site full of legends (El Dorado), and started to climb to very impressive mountains full of vegetation and farms. The road took us to some very hard climbs over cement that quickly became dirt on the Guatavita Dirt Road. Up and down, it was a typical cross country trip with beautiful views all the way.
