Starting from our office in Villa de Leyva, you’ll climb on a paved road surrounded by farm fields and oak forests where you will reach the beautiful waterfalls at La Cebada River. There you can hike on a path up to the side of the river, reaching the cascade and cooling off on the pond, if you wish as a reward. On the way back, take a fun dirt road with a magnificent view and a challenging downhill ride, to reach “El pozo de la vieja” (the old woman’s pond), another beautiful place to swim and rest for a while. Finally, a little warm up with a 2km uphill to get to the road that will take us back to town.
