Cascada La Chorrera, Choachi

4.7
#2 of 16 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.

  • The place is totally beautiful, is only 1 hour from Bogotá, admission to the Park is before reaching Choachí via is uncovered, but is in good condition, (as advice if the waze shows another route after crossing the village is not appropriate to take it already q) EU road is very bad and could ruin the vehicle), the entrance to the Park has a value of $12,000 and if you want to have lunch at the place you can depart, trails are well-marked also has guides from the Park down the road that you are counted on the luga r, is really excellent service and everything you find, the walk lasts approximately 4 hours counting the time taking pictures and contemplate the nature

  • It is an excellent place to reconnect with nature. Recommendations: Bring change when end of travel carry cash. Pay for lunch before taking travel carry water, wear comfortable clothing for walking lead caps and/or devices to cover the Sun lead blocker.

  • Amazing hike. Key problem if you don't have a rental car is how to get a ride home. A taxi or uber will give a ride there. We paid our Uber drive 2x the "ride there" price to say and give us a ride ho...  more »

  • Amazing experience, I feel like a new person, the energy and the beauty were breathtaking. You are able to get really close to the waterfall, you can almost shower in it, I literally left soaking wet (bring clothes and shoes to change) the hiking is really nice you get a beautiful view, it's not extremely hard but it's not that easy, if you never exercise you'll probably will be sore next day. It takes around 2 hours to get to the waterfall from the parking lot and another 1:30 to get from the main road to the parking lot so my advice is to get transportation that will get you all the way to the parking lot. Keep in mind it is kind of cold there so bring a light jacket. The best season to visit it at the rainy season so you can see the waterfall at it's best.
  • Must see. Not for your first day in Bogota region... hike is pretty hard for not fully acclimated, 15000+ steps over steep slippery rocks, however, worth every effort. Good hiking shoes, rain jacket and water ... scenery is not from this world ... falls are magnificent and on your way back absolutely have to stop and try mojitos and rope de vieja made by dancing Cubano just before the park entrance ... great day trip
  • 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.
  • Lovely walk. Takes 2.5 hours.
  • 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.
