Chingaza national park
Chingaza was first declared a National Park in 1977 and today covers approximately 76,600 hectares, with altitudes ranging from 800 to 4,020 m.a.s.l. It is home to over 400 species of birds, 260 mammals, 44 amphibians and 29 reptiles, a meca for wildlife viewing and nature enthusiasts.
As a photographer, birdwatcher and wildlife guide, it’s no surprise that Chingaza is one of my favorite places to visit near Bogotá. I have been guiding visitors through the park regularly since 2012. These images represent some of the diversity one might expect to find there.
