Province of SUGAMUXI
Sugamuxi is still a new discovery for many, as a largely unknown province, which has unique landscapes and culture to amaze travelers. Its capital is Sogamoso, a convenient and well-located town from which to explore the surrounding areas.
In Sogamoso, you may visit the Temple of the Sun, which shows the remains of the Muisca people, one of the main ancient cultures in northern Andes, who gave high tribute to the sun, water, and astronomical observation.
Sugamuxi has 13 towns, each of them with a highlight worth visiting. Some of the most known are Iza, Monguí, Nobsa, and Tibasosa, although others wait for you to explore them! To see all of these wonderful places you need at least two weeks to get a real taste of this region.
Here, there are many amazing trekking routes; the new Condor route, where Condor has been released and seen!, and the Páramo of Ocetá which is known for its stunning views.
Incredibly, 70% of Colombia’s water comes from páramos, this rare tropical ecosystem only found in 6 countries in the world (and Sugamuxi has a good amount of them!). Oh yes!, Sugamuxi is a region of páramos, where you can find at least 10 amazing and different ones to hike and get this exceptional contact with nature and superb sceneries all around.
