Welcome to Güicán
Though not as photogenic or traveler friendly as its rival El Cocuy, the chilly village of Güicán is surrounded by spectacular nature and has become a popular starting point for trekkers heading up to the mountains, mainly because it provides a closer and easier hike to Parque Nacional Natural El Cocuy. Nonhikers should note that Güicán offers a number of attractions that don't necessarily involve strenuous mountain paths.
The town is a gateway to the traditional lands of the indigenous U'wa community. Religious tourism associated with the miracle of the Virgen Morenita de Güicán is also a major source of revenue.
