Cascada La Chorrera, Choachi

4.7
#2 of 6 in Wildlife in Cundinamarca Department
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. Our Choachi route planner makes visiting Cascada La Chorrera and other Choachi attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • La Chorrera is located in the municipality of Choachi, an hour from Bogotá. It is a spectacular place to disconnect from the city and worth the penalty meet and enjoy to recharge with good energy!

  • The falls were amazing and powerful to see, but the hike was a little out of my comfort range. Some parts of the trail were very muddy and slippery and a few of the inclines were physically challenging. If you're at least a mediocre hiker and don't mind getting a bit muddy and wet you'll be treated to some fascinating waterfalls and scenery. Our Guide Andres was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and the plant and animal life that thrives there.
  • The tallest waterfall in Colombia very close to Bogotá. To get there without car you must take a regular service van that goes from Bogotá to Choachi (about COP$10K) You can take it at Calle 6 down half block from Av. Caracas (Tercer Milenio Station). You should ask the driver to leave you at La Chorrera. He will drop you off on the road about 1 hour from Bogotá. There may be some people in vans or 4x4s that will be willing to take you to the waterfall camping ground site for a fee. Otherwise you can hike there and it will take you about 1 hour through a rural unpaved road. You will be asked to pay an entrance fee at the camping site (COP$12K) and from there to the waterfall itself there is another 1 hour hike through a difficult path, with many ups and downs and muddy terrain. On the way you will pass El Chiflón, a smaller waterfall where there is a restaurant. Overall a very nice day trip where you will get a glimpse of the outstanding sights of the Colombian landscape.
  • A must see in Bogota! We went through Bogota and Beyond. Amazing service even though we organized it last minute the night before.
  • It's the tallest waterfall in Colombia, we tryed to rappel down it in the nacional canyoning meeting but it was just to long a cold, the view is great and so is the weather, you can try rappelling one of the smaller waterfalls with an organized tour agency or try rock climbing nearby, if your in Bogota and have time its worth you visit Choachi and la chorrera waterfall.
  • Just beautiful and natural environment. It's such a rewarding and refreshing feeling reaching the falls after the trek through the Andes!
