|Lake Tota is a picturesque high-altitude lake not far from Sogamoso. It’s a pleasant day out circumnavigating it by bus, stopping off at the towns and villages – especially with a lunch break at Playa Blanca (White Beach).|
|If you’ve written a description for Lake Tota (Lago de Tota) you’d like to share with the community, send it to [email protected] and we’ll post it right here in the directory.|
|Bring weatherproof gear as the weather can be quite changeable this high up!|
|If you get peckish, make sure you try some trout (trucha) fresh from the lake. There are a few restaurants right on the Playa Blanca (White Beach) that make for a great spot.|
|It’s easy enough to get to the lake by bus from Sogamoso, but if you want to circumnavigate it you’ll have to make at least one change and those buses can be a little infrequent. Start your day early enough and you should be fine.|
