Cerros De Bogota free pdf At 10,000 feet, the Eastern Ridges (Cerros Orientales) of the city of Bogota are a dominant feature of the city's landscape. These mountains are an integral part of the public space of the city and influence its culture as directly as any river or ocean shoreline. This book presents them in a new way, one that recognises their remarkable natural features and appreciates their enormous ecological potential. On foot, and at times from the air, it allows us to enter into a world that conserves a remarkable amount of High Andean tropical vegetation and wildlife within an urban area of 7 million. This book aims to encourage a much-needed reappraisal of these ridges, regarded as sacred by the indigenous Muisca society, and still a natural wonder for visitors and the residents of Bogota.
