On this tour you will visit the lagoon where the famous â€śEl Doradoâ€ť legend was originated.
The lagoon was discovered in 1537 by the spaniard Gonzalo JimĂ©nez de Quesada, and it was considered to be sacred by the indigenous Muisca tribe. It was used for the offering ceremony by the leader of the tribe, and thatâ€™s why the legend of â€śEldoradoâ€ť tells that many golden treasures are hidden there.
In the past, several treasure hunters tried to drain the lagoon in their desperate search of gold.
There you will also enjoy the beautiful scenery of the lagoon and itâ€™s surroundings.
At the end of the tour you will be dropped off at your hotel or at a convenient place within the urban area.
