Cascada La Chorrera, Bogota

(120+ reviews on the web)
Wildlife Area
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.

  • First you have to rescue what staggered cataract high of South America, has 595 metres in 5 steps, it is truly a wonder of nature. A true adventure since when you take the road to Choachi, though it is a narrow path, has enough traffic. The excursion that my spouse and I did, was a medium, of more or less 3 hours difficulty hike, there are good facilities before entering the Park. It is land of paramo fog with a very interesting vegetation, very well maintained, you can have a guide or guides depending on the size of the group.

  • 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
