Cascada La Chorrera, Choachi

4.7
#2 of 14 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.

  • Just across the mountains from Bogotá, this is a gorgeous taste of rural Colombia. From the main road, you pass through a couple villages and reach a really nice private park -- with super friendly st...  more »
  • I can't understand why this waterfall is not as popular as it should be . Only 40 kmts away from Bogota, no trafdfic jams, beautiful landscape and friendly campesinos.  more »
  • It was a clear day, so the rocks and scramble were not slippery. I went after the second day in Bogota and wasn't quite adjusted to the altitude, so I'd recommend going there once you're used to the 8...  more »

  • 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.
  • Beautiful day away from the city
  • A must see in Bogota! We went through Bogota and Beyond. Amazing service even though we organized it last minute the night before.
