If you choose to take the eastbound exit, you can find the rural areas of the districts of Santa Fe, Chapinero and Usaquén. These strategic zones are considered to be the lung of the city due to their extensions of natural spaces that provide easy connection to the Chingaza National Park which represent great value for the region. You can also visit the surrounding municipalities like La Calera, Guasca and Choachí.
The Monserrate Hill, located on the Eastern Hills of the city, whose name GUAQUE TENSAQÁ means Sun Mountain, is a sacred place for Muisca culture. From the geography of the sacred places, it is in the Cerro de Monserrate, where the most important sites converge, like the lagoon of Guatavita, Chisacá and Ubaque, Chingaza and Siecha; also the Chia Temple, the Tunjo Stones and the Temple of Bosa.
In the place where The Sanctuary of the Fallen Lord of Monserrate, of Catholic worship, inaugurated in 1620, is now located there used to be four sacred temples (CHUNSUÁS).
EL VERJON EXIT (Choachí and Calera)
• Teusaca lagoon
Also known as Laguna del Verjón, it is a sacred site which is part of the "ruining the earth" ceremony, in which the Mhuysqas communities traveled through the territory of five sacred lagoons located behind the eastern hills of Bogota, to worship Mother Earth. Today it is represented by a pedestrian route, which indicates the connection of each of the sacred lagoons to the churches that currently surround the Bolívar Square in Bogotá.
Next to Cerro de Monserrate and in the middle of the tutelary hills of the capital, where the wisdom of the Mhuysqas ancestors is preserved, there is the Cerro de Guadalupe, TCHIGUACHI. The mountain of the Moon, consecrated to the mother HUITAQA, wife of BOTCHIQA. The indigenous communities continue to visit the hill to practice and maintain the spiritual balance of Mother Earth. Today Our Lady of Guadalupe is venerated in the church built by the Catholic religion.
