Estrecho del Magdalena, San Agustin

4.6
#2 of 6 in Outdoors in Huila Department
#Outdoor Activity, #Must See
Observe the sculpting power of a fast river current at Estrecho del Magdalena. Here the Magdalena River surges through a small pass between the rocks, leaving very visible signs of erosion in its wake and sculpting formations over time. Take in the scenery as you listen to water crashing against the rocks. A statue of the virgin Mary sits perched up on a cliff observing the forces of nature. Bring your own refreshments, as there are no amenities here, and travel to nearby sites is via unpaved roads.

  • Visit the Strait of rio Magdalena is a tour not to be missed in San Agustin. This River is the longest of the Colombia, across several States, and the more narrow reaches 1.80 m wide.

  • Since that is the viewpoint of the Strait of Magdalena, the image is already incredible. However to be there and see the immensity and the force of the river decreased by a few meters on a stone carved in a very particular way, make the experience a liable in the municipality of San Agustin. Preferred.

  • It is the site where the Magdalena Uncle goes by its narrowest part in all Colombia (2.5 meters of width). It is not only interesting for this, but that the landscape is beautiful! Note everywhere to know in St. Augustine you down and climbing steps. It is a great exercise.

  • Beautiful place. And at such significant river for the Colombian people. There were tons of people when we got there late afternoon so go early if possible
  • Beautiful place, and deceptively dangerous. The Magdalena river is the longest in Colombia, reaching a width of about 4 kilometers as it reaches the sea, and at this point its width is reduced to just two meters. Because of this, it doesn't look particularly dangerous, but the current is strong and its depth is still considerable. Must see place, but don't fool around with careless selfies.
  • Beautiful place
  • One of those places where you can feel the power of nature: 2 meters wide, 19 meters deep; and a dangerous place, of course; don't came too close...!
  • Beautiful
