Make sure to start early in the morning rather than being hit by the heat and don’t forget a hat and water. Even if you will have two spots on the way where you can buy juices and water. I’d recommend to start from Barichara...More

It was an exhilarating walk for a 65 year old with a bad knee. I hired a local guide to accompany me. Carlos proved to be well acquainted with the area and a solid shoulder to lean on on the steepest downhills. I was rewarded...More

A truly beautiful walk between Barichara and Guane; it took me about 2 hours at a good pace, stopping to take photos because the view is just spectacular. I would avoid going in the heat of the day as this made it a bit harder...More

This is a beautiful walk. Wear hiking boots or trainers. It's not difficult at all but there are rocks which you can slip on. Most of it is downhill or straight. A very small part up hill. It is easy. Not always clearly sign posted...More

Nice quite walk with nice views. Not too much to do in Guane except visiting the museum and the view from the “mirador”. The walk is not easy due to the rocks the path is made of. Make sure to have walking boots!

The stones ate difficult to walk on. Recommended hiking boots. The town of Guane was pleasant place to visit and have lunch.

Up and downs, under the sun. 1h to get to Guane where there is a great southern atmosphere with shops and small bars. 1h30 to go back up!

Colombia keeps on blowing my mind due to the spectacular scenery that you meet almost anywhere you go in the country. As we set out on the Barichara to Guani walk we were first informed that the walk would take us 30 minutes. We arrived...More

Camino real is a great hike from Barichara to Guane, 5.1 miles, mostly down, clean, safe, well marked. About half an hour before the end there is a house where cold drinks are sold, just when you most need them! Views from the valley are...More

Hey Erika. Well, for starters, there is no "downtown" in Barichara. It is a charming little village. You can walk from one end to the other in about 10 minutes. Therefore, the head of the Camino Real trail should be no more... More
