Mountain Biking

DEPARTURE AND ARRIVAL HOSTAL VILLA SAN JUAN

Our strategic location and the design of our facilities, made thinking on the wellbeing of cyclists, make of our house a unique place to enjoy and challenge yourself to the highest in the mountains of our territory.

Our biggest wish is for you to enjoy this experience, so it is very important to take into account that to ride the mountains of our region, you need some physical condition a bit over that one of a beginner. Ascents accumulating elevations from 500 meters to 2500 meters, crossing rivers, lagoons, páramos, beautiful and unique towns, and incredible scenarios, will allow you to enjoy and discover some inimitable landscapes proper of our east mountain range, in the Andes. Do not worry, remember that every climb you make, is followed by a descent as fun as challenging the climbing was.

We work in association with some tour operators, who will be your guides. Do not worry, you will always be with the right company.

Routes through Mongui

Monguí is a unique territory to visit and to explore riding a mountain bike. It offers 4 different routes to discover its landscape, and of course these routes can be mixed to get an even funnier ride. Strong but short ascents make us feel the harshness of breathing over the 3000 meters above sea level, to reach the páramo in less than 10 kilometers.
 
Up next we show you the basic characteristics of each route found in Monguí. To ride any of these lanes, we leave from Hostel Villa San Juan by the main road to the plaza of Monguí, following only the paved road, or taking a small detour to get to Monguí by dirty road. Once in the plaza, we begin more fun part of each journey.

SUSTAINABILITY PRINCIPLES

SUSTAINABILITY POLICY​

Located in the heart of a privileged ecosystem, in Villa San Juan we find essential to guarantee the minimum negative impact on our environment and community. On the contrary, we plead for activities and processes that allow us to achieve a sustainable development.

For this purpose, we rely on existing knowledge, generated by well-known institutions with an extended wisdom on corporate sustainability.

In 1983, the World Comission on Environment and Development (WCED) led by Harlem Brundtland, defined Sustainable Development as the one that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. By 2010, Alberta University defined sustainability as the process of living within the limits of available physical, natural and social resources in ways that allow the living systems in which humans are embedded to thrive in perpetuity.

The National Assembly of the United Nations defined in 2005 the three main pillars in which Sustainability is supported. These are environment, economy and society. Environmental Sustainability points out that the ecological integrity and the natural balance of ecosystems must be maintained. It means that natural resources must be consumed by humans at a rate that allow them to recover by themselves

Economical sustainability indicates that human communities around the world maintain their independence, and have access to the required resources to fulfill their own needs. Economical activities must be available for everyone, as a secure source of incomes to keep adequate life conditions

Social Sustainability looks forward to making human rights and basic needs assured to everyone. Also, every person must have access to the sufficient resources to keep their families and communities secure and healthy.  In these communities, leaders assure that human rights are respected as also cultural and labour rights, and protect every person from discrimination.

Achieving a Sustainable Development implies to abide by certain social, environmental and economic principles. Next we show you the sustainability principles to which we commit ourselves to follow.
