Cascada La Chorrera, Bogota

(4.7/5 based on 120+ 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.

  • The place is on the road to an Choachi, where there is a diverted approximately 3.5 Km road uncovered, removed from the entrance and ticket office park, parking there by which to walk with rather steep slopes which finally preheating unless they rise in a vehicle 4 x 4 that can make the journey. Already in the box office there are different plans with different values depending on if is wants to enter to an or to the two waterfalls, if is with lunch or not etc. The value for visiting the waterfalls 2 is $12000. The roads are of ascent and down in stone, with scales and well signposted. Are eight stations where is possible find guides from the park but the hike is possible do it independently. The first waterfall is located near the ticket office and there it is possible to take photos, lunch in the restaurant, do activities in the waterfall or just to watch the water fall. The second cascade is much more far, from the entrance of the Park may be between 3 and 3 and a half hours (depending on the pace with which the walk is done) but the view you get is worth it, is spectacular water is deliciously Frost, sound is wonderful and it might be a long time before making the decision to return. Must take photos and record the sound of the water falling. Delicious contact with fresh air.

  • I wen on my last trip to bogota. It was an excellent choice to go out of the city. The hike was pretty heavy for me at some parts because of altitude. But it was very much worth it. The views were ama...  more »
  • Visit the waterfall for this bridge in January, had many expectations by everything he had read, I went with a group of 10 friends and all found us amazing experience and the landscape, there are 2 options, to get in vehicle particular arrives by 6 Avda Bogota, passes through neighborhoods such as Los Laches, the Guavio, Las Cruces , or in the circunavalar is approximately 1 hour, the road is in regular conditions. Already in our destination is go by a way destapada of approx 3 kms, to the entrance to the Park, this has a cost of $12,000 (although there are several options according to the activities) but this was the option we took that includes the 2 waterfalls walk and it is recommended, according to the physical conditions it may be delayed 3 hours to go and return again to the entrance of the Park I liked the cleanup of the site, as such conservation, there are guides in the journey that you are telling historical and General site data to highlight, this hike can be done on their own, in several web sites promoting it by high prices, which once there you realize that aren't necessary since if you're not in particular car you can take the bus that drops you off at the entrance , additional the lunch and food in general are at prices comfortable.

  • 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
