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.

  • 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 »

  • 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.
