Off-Road Colombia - Emeralds and Waterfalls

True off-road motorcycle adventure on the backroads of Colombia

RIDE DESCRIPTION

Deep in the the eastern portion of the Colombian Andes in the department of Boyaca lies the town of Muzo, known as the world capital of emeralds. Take an amazing motorcycle trip from Medellin and drive through the heart of the Colombian Andes, cross mountain ranges, and streams see amazing vistas and waterfalls and finally get the chance to talk with and photograph emerald miners. Truly a once in a lifetime adventure and completely different than any other trip you have ever taken. 

ITINERARY

DAY 1 - Medellin to Puerto Berríro

 

Leave Medellin in the morning and head off through Bello, Antioquia as we wind our way through the mountains of Colombia. After coming down from one mountain range we spend the night on the edge of the Magdelena River as we rest up for the next day. 

DAY 2 - Puerto Berríro to Windows of Tisquizoque

 

After breakfast and large coffee, we cross the hot plains and begin our ascent into Colombias wild Cordillera Oriental mountain range.  We drive to Florian, Santander home of the Windows of Tisquizoque, a remote and rarely visited three-tiered waterfall plummets from a mountain cave with amazing views over the countryside.  We will spend the day exploring the huge 650ft cave, taking pictures and swimming in the pool below the waterfall. 

DAY 3 - Florian, Santander to Muzo, Boyacá

Today we take the motorcycles to Muzo, Boyacá the world capital of emeralds.  Muzo is known not only for the quantity of emeralds in produces, but also for their superb quality and color with the Muzo mine producing the world's highest quality gems known for their warm, grassy-green color, with hints of yellow. 

DAY 4 - Emerald Mining in Muzo, Boyacá

Today we visit the Emerald mining area.  In the 1980’s drug dealers fought the country's leading emerald mining families for rights to the emeralds.  The mine owners fought back, turning Muzo into the most dangerous place in Colombia and by the end of the decade more than 6,000 people had been killed. Inevitably - as is often the case in Colombia - many of them were civilians caught up in the gun battles between rival paramilitary forces.

 

Now Muzo is a peaceful and beautiful place where we will be able to watch informal emerald miners known as guaqeros scour the river beds along the Itoco river in the Muzo valley in search of the precious stones.  This is a great opportunity for documentary photography as well as a chance to speak with emerald miners about life in the mining camps and surrounding areas. 

 

DAY 5 - Muzo, Boyacá to Medellin

 

The adventure isn't over yet. Get ready from off road motorcycle riding as we leave from Muzo and drive through the heart of the Colombias Emerald mining zone passing through the towns of Coscuez  and Otanche. The area is extremely remote but at the same time very beautiful and awe inspiring. We drop down from the mountain range and cross the plains of colombia again before winding up into the mountain range of Medellin and ending the trip back home in the beautiful Aburrá valley.
