Duration: 8 hours.
Today we will spend the day touring the surroundings of San Agustín. We will start at the Magdalena Strait, the narrowest point that the main river of Colombia exhibits on its way to the ocean and which is surrounded by a beautiful natural landscape of the Andean forest.
Just a few kilometers from there we find the small town of Obando, where we will see some tombs similar to those of the Tierradentro Archaeological Park in Cauca, as well as a small museum in which pieces, older even than those found in San Agustín, are displayed.
The most famous of them is perhaps the "Winged Fish" piece of goldwork, of which a replica is preserved in this museum since the original was moved to the Gold Museum in Bogotá.
The journey continues to the Alto de Los Ídolos park, the second site with the highest density of tombs and statues of the Augustinian culture after the San Agustín Archaeological Park, and then to the Alto de las Piedras where we can see the enigmatic "Doble yo”. Before returning to San Agustín we will pass by the Salto del Mortiño, an impressive waterfall almost 200 meters high.
During the closing of the Alto de Los Ídolos Park, we will be offering a visit to a sugar mill near Obando as a replacement for this activity or a visit to the Chénguilo Viewpoint. None of these options have additional costs, although the sugar mill activity is subject to availability, as operating days vary.
