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.

  • The hike to la Chorrera is a ride that renews the body and mind. Step by step you can enjoy a beautiful natural environment with the guidance of local farmers who have worked to make this place a unique place!

  • On Sixth Avenue, you take the bus that goes to an Choachi, the idea is to leave well early in the morning to enjoy the experience. Passage person costs $ 7000, they are almost two hours and stay at a junction where you will find a booth. Then you take the uncovered road but is in good condition, the walk lasts approximately 1 h 15 min until you reach the point where you buy tickets to the Park. You continue walking, there are approximately 7 stations along the route, all with different themes, it IS BEAUTIFUL. Hike of moderate difficulty, are two waterfalls, the first few minutes of starting your tour and guides are at each station. Wear comfortable clothes, tennis that slipping, snacks, good hydration and if change clothes can. There is a restaurant, in which you turn your lunch early, or they take their food as in our case. Is very beautiful, a place that no one should miss. Renewed sales. A missed connection with nature.

  • A spectacular site that, over time, your administrators have been able to improve the infrastructure and services to make the tourists enjoy this experience in the best way. The guides are being trained so that aspects as important as a second language (English at least) is not an obstacle for foreign visitors... Close to Bogota this this option to make an amazing hike!!!

  • 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
