Need to Know
At almost 4,500 meters above sea level, it's much colder being very close to the mountains that are usually covered with fog in the morning. Continue ascending through the green of Huita and its forests of pine and eucalyptus, crossing places that the road makes an "X", "Y", and finally "Z" to reach the high point of a slow fire road. Here, there is a great panoramic view of the place.
Next begins a continuous descent. Take care for large and loose stones, curves, and finally the crossing of the river Bogota reaching Santa Rosa. You go to the river and then start a constant ascent on pavement towards the Alto de Teneria, 3 km of a fun finish down to reach the end of the circuit.
