We did this hike in August 2018.
The hike starts from Mongui. Mongui is a tiny town but offers accommodation. We slept in Sogamoso and via our hostel we arranged a taxi to bring us to Mongui (1h drive max).
Once we arrived in Mongui...More
A stunning hike, worth it even though the rain / fog.
I caught a bus from Sogamoso (takes about 1 hour $4000) arriving in Mongui at 10. After consulting reviews and looking at Maps me I choose to go solo- have minimal Spanish so wasn't...More
Páramo de Ocetá is fantastic. One of the best landscapes we’ve ever seen. We hired the best local guide ever! His name is EMIGDIO, and his company is TURISMONGUÍ. Just a few metres from the main square in Monguí. He told us so much about...More

We did a morning hiking trip with Maria (+57 313 479 8492), and we really enjoyed it. We left at 8:00 with a car that she arranged before, so that we could go out of Mongui and skip the less interesting part of the way,...More
I had done various trek in colombian paramos especially around Bogota and i have to admit that the Paramo de Oceta is the most beautiful. This paramo is unique with different species of Frailejones, small lagunas, and other suprise
Before going at Mongui, i have...More
