Cascada La Chorrera, Bogota
(4.6/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Balance the activities of the bustling city with a visit to Cascada La Chorrera, an area known for its verdant cloud forest, biodiverse wildlife, and pristine cascades. The waterfall stands as the second highest in Colombia at a height of 590 m (1935 ft). Visitors should not miss the smaller Chiflón Waterfall, ideal for taking refreshingly cool dips at the natural pool at the bottom. Be aware of the high altitude, however you'll find numerous water bottle stands along the way. By using our Bogota trip itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to Cascada La Chorrera and other attractions in Bogota.

  • Experience incredible, visit the tallest waterfall in South America, this very well preserved and care have improved, is an ideal to connect with nature walk, you can just go although I was with a group called Evergreen bogota which make outs with small groups, interacts well with people ties of friendship are great.

  • Charming and worthy of being walked in its entirety nature reserve. Do not forget to bring warm clothing because it makes cold, but after everything you need to travel will be raging

  • We went with our own car to the adventure! The road to arrive is divine passing by plateaus, cliffs, changes of climate, walnuts and Sun. It is not an easy road and gets more complicated when it comes out of the main road. To reach the entrance of the Park, there is a long way from Earth and gravel which is in good condition. You park at the neighbors House for a tidy sum and walking up to the entrance to the Park. Paid an income depending on if it is going to el Chiflón which are 20 minutes walk of ida and many others back, or if you are at La Chorrera roundtrip hike takes between 2.30 hours and 3 hours. Wear good shoes because this always slippery and muddy. We made the trek to el Chiflón because we had no time. The road is sounded, you can do with kids because it is not so long, the waterfall is divine and you can walk between the waterfall and the mountain there is a lookout! We went in rainy season with which the flow was impressive! We will again make the whole road to La Chorrera with good shoes and some food. If you're on day of week no one and this good get a guide who engages in the place (but there are few so it may be that they have come out with another group...) This weekend more armed with drinks stalls and restaurants (very nice what we saw in el Chiflón but we didn't see it in operation). Hopefully serve them the info and do not let go, is worthwhile!

  • The Cascada La Chorrera is about 45 - 50 minute walk from El Chiflón, depending on how many picture stops you make on the way, hahaha. La Chorrera is pretty magnificent and makes for awesome photos. Feel free to go climb on the large boulders and get misted by the waterfall. The smaller waterfall, Cascada El Chiflón, is where you meet the guide that will take you to La Chorrera. You can walk under and behind El Chiflón. There are also options to go Rappelling down El Chiflón, but I did not see anyone doing so... probably since the water is freezing cold! Cost to enter the Park to visit La Chorrera was 12000 COP per person, as of May/June 2016.
  • Beautiful falls and a well marked trail. From the main road it's about an hour to walk to the trail head. The first waterfall (El Chifón) is a nice little circuit that takes you behind the falls. The main falls is about a two hour return trip from El Chifón.
  • We went on a tour organized by 'Bogota and Beyond' and can heartily recommend them for those who do not have the ability to organize the trip themselves. The waterfall is hardly known to the inhabitants of Bogotá, which gives one a certain cachet if one has made the not inconsiderable effort to visit it. Wonderful countryside, quite a difficult trail, but we felt completely safe the whole time. Well worth while to see a part of Colombia many people miss.
  • Beautiful day trip, only 45 min in bus from Bogota! It's such a nice landscape you will not regret to do this 4-5 hours hike! It's an easy hike and on the way you have small shops where local sell fresh homemade yogurt with fruit taste - and other drinks and snacks to get energy for the hike!
  • Walk through rain forest and the tallest waterfall in Colombia. Recommended
