The Beak of the Eagle (Pico del Águila) is a natural lookout located 2,290 meters above sea level, on the edge of the oriental range. A series of rockslides that fell from “Peña,” currently gives us an incredible panoramic view of the region of the Tequendama, the vale of Peñas Blancas, Santandercito, Mesitas, Anapoima, La Mesa, Tena and in clear days allows us to see the snow-capped mountains of Tolima, Santa Isabel, and Ruiz, in the Central Mountain range. In this area there are high concentrations of carbon, for this reason, the rocks are black. This area is also characterized by the presence of air currents formed by strong temperature changes. It is not uncommon to see vultures and eagles flying over this area.
Entering to the Natural Park Chicaque will make you feel like you’re in a movie. A grand amount of fauna and flora will surprise you with its diversity. You can also look forward to waterfalls, seven types of forests, more than 200 species of birds, 20 types of mammals and other countless attractions.
The “Pico del Águila”, the “Roquedal”, “Las Mariposas”, “Dos Quebradas”, “Bosque de Robles”, the “La Cascada” and the “Sendero Colonial”, together account for more than 20 kilometers of hiking trails, which are the main attractions of this park. The park is only 50 minutes from Bogotá and is a must-see destination.
The view from the restaurant is precious and will allow you to contemplate the majesty of this natural treasure, while enjoying a delicious lunch.
