About Bogota

The undying love for exploring the unknown and an unsatiated hunger for basking in the richness of Mother Nature have compelled tourists from across the world to discard the comforts of everyday life and emerge onto the road to uncharted destinations. This passion for seeing the unseen brings us straight to Bogota, the beautiful Capital city of Colombia, best known as Colombia’s capital for official business dealings. Diversity in culture and architecture with the rare touch of greenery and cradled by Andean peaks, the city of Bogota has topped the travel list for many itinerants from nations far and near. Bogota is the third-highest capital in the world, lying at 2640 meters above sea level. The beautiful capital city houses some of the world’s famous architectures which are likely to give the tourists a taste of colonial and modern style blended in a perfect mixture. It is truly a city of contrasts where one encounters century old plazas and churches outlined by towering skyscrapers. It enjoys the best of both Spanish, English, and Indian influences. The vibrant city of Bogota is the main economic and industrial hub for Colombia, incorporating 1500 multinational companies and the primary stock market. It was the first Latin American city to have won the title of ‘World Book Capital’ by UNESCO. Also, the precious green gemstones called Emeralds worth over 50 carats are mined and produced domestically in the city of Bogota that accounts for nearly 70-90% of the world’s emerald market. The spectacular green landscape of Bogota is the ideal destination to explore the richness of history, cultural diversity, food, and local customs.
