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.

  • I had recommended this site twice, reason for which I came a week ago. Now pay income long before reaching the waterfall, the cost is seven thousand pesos (7000 cop) if only we will visit the bottom of the waterfall. They have placed a camping area to middle of the road, which is organised and well-kept, but the truth makes me sad that a natural attraction has become a nice business, I don't know if this will be the only way to preserve our natural resources.

  • Via Choachí is a little dangerous, on Saturday there were many vehicles of learning and many cyclists, is also in service and has many potholes, as well as being narrow. Since arriving at the waterfall there are several sites to dedayunar. We had breakfast in a simple place called Fercho arepas, very overweight cheese, were exquisite. The entrance to the farm is where the waterfall is a road in regular conditions of single-lane more preferred to go on camper or van. Arriving at the site the box office entrance is worth 12000 per person, there are all the way signs and guides that tell you local stories about flora, location, history, brief but interesqnte. The journey to la Chorrera is raised in 2h30min, however you can do it at your own pace, you should wear good shoes, ideally linen change and good hydration. The landscapes are great, simply spectacular air. I recommend not going in big groups, it is better in small groups by the rhythm of the walk and poque allows you to more easily stop, contemplate, take photos and the best way to get going with a small group is arriving early. Back went to the waterfall chiflón waterfalls where you are close to your fall of precious truth and apparently it is possible to make canyoning in it (not saw anyone practicing). At the end of the tour, we had lunch there same a rich trout, each dish complete with lunch by 20 thousand. We need to improve the infrastructure of the baths a little, but overall it is a great visit deserves any Bogotá or anyone who you want to disconnect from the urban life and receive a dose of nature.

  • -nice trip which starts on top of a hill Crest and walk around completely to a front view of the waterfall-curious thing is that there is no guide was as a person, but two dogs that showed the way and guide the right way to our group. To end of the walk we were told by the owner of the dogs that when serious problems along the way, one of both dogs and so "alarm" can save ... Very odd ...

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