Panachi, also known as Chicamocha National Park, 50km from Bucaramanga, Colombia, is the site of a top-notch tourist attraction. Not only does it possess a spectacular landscape featuring the Chicamocha canyon, the second deepest canyon worldwide, it offers a large variety of outdoor activities such...More
There wasn’t a lot to do when we went here because they are closed certain days and times of day. On the weekend, it is apparently booming so during the week there wasn’t a crowd but the restaurants weren’t open. The views however, are breathtaking...More
We have been visiting this park several times, if you get your ticket, don't forget to include the cablecar. It's a beautiful ride to the other side of the mountainridge, to mesa de los santos. On the other side you can visit shops and restaurants...More

Located only a short distance from Bucaramanga the park is not only accessible but is accessible once there. The gondola/cable car ride is highly recommended, as well as visiting the momument to Stanander history.
10 out 10. You must come here. Wonderful and breathtaking scenery. Great ride on the cable cars to go there if you are riding from la Mesa de los Santos. Food, adventure, picture taking. It has it all.

To get to Panachi you go by road, from Bucaramanga (BGA), which takes about 2 hrs or so, depending on traffic in BGA and what part of the city you depart from. Once you are at Panachi you can roam the park which is rather small compared to US parks, but sits on top of the Chicamocha Canyon. One of the big attractions here is paragliding from this spot which can place you at or above 2,000 feet from the river in altitude. There is also a new Aqua park which is very nice as the weather at the park is very hot year round. Once at the park you can take the cable to go to "Mesa de los santos". This is a separate part of the park that sits in the other side of the canyon and has a small plaza with cafe's, restaurants and souvenir shops. The cable goes all the way down to the river and up to la mesa, and takes about 20 min ride (about 5 km long). So you can take the cable, but you don't have to. If you want to see both parts of the park you must take it, but the biggest part is where you arrive by road. The weather at "La mesa" is a bit cooler.
