Ruta Chingaza is a weeklong bikepacking loop that starts and ends in Bogotá, Colombia. The route, created in conjunction with Conservation International, travels through some of the area’s most spectacular landscapes, including the high-altitude cloud forests and endangered páramos that provide 70 percent of Bogotá’s fresh water supply. The highlight of the route is the breathtakingly beautiful Chingaza National Park, which was previously inaccessible to cyclists.
