  • Discover a great climbing venue near Bogota

  • Old Macheta (Salón de la Justicia) offers several overhangs and caves

  • New Macheta has long routes and beautiful landscapes


Machetá is a little village situated 80 km from Bogota, the capital city of Colombia. It boasts very long sport routes and steep caves of sandstone. I invite you to join me on a climbing tour in Machetá for 1 or more days.

The place has two different climbing areas:  Old Machetá has caves and several overhangs, whereas New Machetá, also called “Salón de la Justicia” (Hall of Justice) has long routes and a very impressive landscape.

Machetá has an aerial and beautiful landscape over the region with forest and farms. Some climbers consider Machetá the best climbing spot in Colombia. The quality of the routes and de rock is excellent!

You need at least one day in each area to take full advantage of the possibilities they offer. The approach to the crag takes 1 hour, following a very steep trail. The upper ledge has some technical steps. After we reach the climbing area, we have a short rest and spend the day climbing in different sections and routes.

At the end of the day, we descend and get back to the village. You can check the detailed itinerary below. Bear in mind you need intermediate level climbing skills as the routes are not easy.

So if you have some previous climbing experience and want to put your skills in use in Macheta, just send me a request. Book your trip and get ready for a great climbing day in Colombia.

El Jardín de los Superamigos is a very nice hostel near the climbing area.

About the guide

guide profile img

Hi, my name is Luis. I am an engineer who has made the mountains my way of life. I live in Machetá, a small village 80 km north of Bogotá, where is one of the best climbing spots in the country. I have been a travel guide throughout Colombia since 2007 and in 2013 I was certified by the Association of Mountain Guides and Climbers in Colombia (ACGME) as a Rock Climbing Instructor.

I can take you to the some of the many climbing sites in the country, mainly in Suesca, Machetá and Sutatausa, very close to Bogotá. Also, we can go on trekkings and outings and enjoy walks through Colombia’s stunning nature.

In addition to providing for maximum safety possible during the climbs, I am also a writer for mountain magazines and a I love stories, so I always enjoy a good conversation during a day of climbing. Contact me and we will plan your next climbing or hiking adventure in Colombia!
