The climb starts in the town of Choachi about 25 miles outside of Bogota. Bogota is located in a plateau nestled in the Eastern Cordillera of the Andes at an altitude of about 8600 feet and the road connecting it to Choachi shares the same characteristics as several others leaving the city in that it begins with a short climb to a mountain pass that then descends towards the outlying towns. The most likely route for doing this climb then is to start in Bogota and climb to the mountain pass at Paramo del Verjon, descend down to Choachi and reverse the route. The views on this climb are truly breathtaking on a clear day including experiencing the typical flora of the Paramo such as the Frailejon plant and then the lush greens of the mountains at lower altitudes as one gets closer to Choachi. The road is in very good condition although it includes some bumps to force cars to slow down and as is typical in Colombia there are a significant number of trucks traveling the route.
