We took the bus to the Chicamocha National Park where there is a brand new cable car which crosses the Chicamocha canyon. Apparently this is now the longest cable in the world at 6.3 Km. The car travels from the top of the canyon on one side, down to the river in the canyon valley, and the up the other side of the canyon to a higher cliff than the beginning...then you have to do it in reverse to get back! On our journey across the canyon the cross-winds were pretty strong and the car was moving about alot....then the car stopped...yeah we were scared!
After about 10 mins the cars got going again...much to our relief!

There were great views from the car but we were glad to be back on solid ground...
