Chicamocha National Park (also known as Panachi) is an hour and a half drive from Barichara, on the road to Bucaramanga. Here visitors can see goats and ostriches and the monument to Santandereanidad, and ride a cable car over the canyon. In fact, the four-mile cable car ride that crosses the Chicamocha river canyon is one of the Park’s major attractions.
