Excursions from Bogotá

Salt Mines

Located in Zipaquira, this is the largest attraction around Bogotá. It is a salt mine complex turned into a cathedral. Inside are 14 stations of the cross and a huge cross over the high altar, carved into the rock and lit from the back, and side-chapels which provide a real spiritual experience.

Suesca

Suesca has recently been developed into a centre for adventure activities (rock climbing, mountain biking and white-water rafting). It is a good one day (possibly overnight) trip from Bogotá; rock climbers should get in touch with Monodedo to hire equipment or event organise climbing lessons.
