Chicamocha canyon

Hi, so last week i visited the marvelous chicamocha canyon, second biggest in the world, carved in the mountains only 1 hour away from Bucaramanga (Colombia) you can find this magestic place. result of a geological accident is bathed by the river with the same name. This place is home of the Chicamocha natural park, were you can see the environment in its full, it also offers some extreme attractions like paragliding and ziplining, you can also cross the whole canyon trough an aerial tramway. I went there last sunday and brought some photos back. enjoy
