Martus Swamp (pantano) – Guatanfur
The region of Swamp of Martos (Martus) corresponds to the eastern mountainous strip of the municipalities of Guasca and Guatavita. Geographically it is the prolongation towards the north, of the natural park Chingaza but it is not within the official area of the park. It is a protected nature reserve by local municipalities and it also provides water to the Junin region in eastern Cundinamarca. This ecosystem is a refuge for population of deers and spectacled bears.
Our trail begins in the swamp and continues ascending towards the “páramo” of Guatanfur (the summit of Pan de Azúcar).
Approximate trail distance: 14 km.
