Overview

About an hour from Popayán is the pretty little mountain town of Silvia. There you will learn about the home of the indigenous Misak. This is a conservative and isolated pre-columbian tribe.

This stunning mountain biking trip follows a beautiful trail starting at 3,100 metres of altitude in a small farming community before climbing gently to the spectacular Paramo de las Moras at 3,400 metres. Enjoying this special backdrop of mountain peaks and endemic vegetation, we begin the descent through the Indigenous reserve of Ambaló before entering the picturesque Guambia community with traditional farm houses, vegetable gardens, trout farms and roaring rivers.

The ride is 32kms on farm roads and finishes in the village of Silvia, famous for the vibrant Tuesday market. The trip is of medium difficulty and should be easily achievable by experienced riders and those in good physical condition. There is a support vehicle and mechanic following the bikes and a local mountain biking guide can be contracted for an extra charge if required.
