a Mojarra is located in a valley adjacent to the famous Chicamocha Canyon, with over 100 climbing routes ranging from 5.7 to 14a, this picturesque destination is the perfect place to have your next rock climbing adventure!
La Mojarra is about an hour south from Bucaramanga. Stunning canyons surround the Mesa and was previously inhabited by the Guane people, which had a fascinating history and culture. Words cannot describe the beauty of the landscape here. The bright reds, pinks, oranges and yellows of the rocks create an image that appears to have been painted by hand. A great expanse of blue sky stretches upward and an occasional cloud passes through to provide shade from the glorious sunshine.
Because Colombia is located close to the equator, the climate is consistent. Visit any time of year for sunshine – La Mojarra is at 1,500 meters above sea level (high desert), so the climate is warm and dry during the day, and downright chilly in the evenings. Be sure to pack a wide range of clothing for this trip.
A great place to stay while you are climbing at La Mojarra is Sol de la Mojarra, an eco hostel in the valley. Comfortable and earthy, this lodging was built by hand out of Bahareque (dirt, straw, and bamboo). From the outdoor shower, you can marvel at the rock face of the climbing park, or catch a glimpse of a magnificent waterfall on the opposite side of the valley. Sol de la Mojarra is owned by Edgar. Edgar is passionate about the local culture and his home (the eco-lodge), which he worked hard to build over the past five years. He is happy to share his culture with visitors, and will even take you on a guided tour of the Mesa, where you can see ancient petroglyphs, and explore mystical caves once used as shelter by the Guane during the heat of the day. Edgar is a wonderful cook, and for a very economical price, he will make your meals for you – all healthy and tasty, to fuel your climbing endeavors.
