La Chorrera and El Chiflón Waterfall Hiking Adventure from Bogotá
Take an adventure to the lush forests outside Bogotá on this 8-hour trip to the towering waterfalls of El Chiflón and La Chorrera (the country’s tallest). Join your guide on a strenuous 3-hour-roundtrip hike through Colombia’s majestic countryside to these two falls, enjoying beautiful views along the way. At the conclusion of your hike, take a break for a hearty meal of Colombian specialties in La Candelaria neighborhood in Bogotá or alternately, depending on time and availability, in Choachi. Your voyage also includes round-trip transportation from hotels in Bogotá, plus all necessary equipment, bottled water and snacks.
What to Expect
Take a break from the city for an adventurous day of hiking set among the beautiful outdoor scenery outside Bogotá on this visit to two of the country’s most impressive waterfalls. 

Begin your day with an 8am pickup from your hotel in Bogotá, proceeding on for 45 minutes to the East Hills, a series of rolling forest-covered peaks set among the Andes mountain range. As your transportation heads ever higher into the mountains, listen as your guide shares details of the area’s geology, and check out the breathtaking views from the roadside cliffs and chasms below.

Start your 3-hour-roundtrip hike through the area’s bright green forests, heading toward your first stop, the waterfall of El Chiflón. Once you arrive at this pounding torrent of water, feel climb behind the falls for a unique view, or jump into the inviting turquoise waters below to cool off. Please Note: The authorities of the Park need to authorize our visit so the decision depends on them.
Your guide will provide a local snack to help you refuel before moving on to the next waterfall.

Head back into the forests for a strenuous hike of about an hour to the towering La Chorrera waterfall. The route up to this stunning site offers an opportunity to observe the region’s diverse plant life, including bromeliads, juniper, orchids, sapodilla, cedar and mahogany. Soon you’ll hear the roar of this natural wonder in the distance. Arrive at this 1,936-foot (590m) tall waterfall, taking a moment to get a few pictures and cool off before beginning the return hike.

Finish your day back in La Candelari or via Choachia, with a traditional lunch and time for some quick sightseeing. Typical Colombian delicacies you may sample ajiaco, a chicken and potato soup, or sancocho, a beef, chicken or vegetable stew, in addition to side dishes like meat, chicken, rice and salad. Finish your day with a return trip back to your Bogotá hotel.

Please note: this tour involves traveling and hiking at altitudes ranging from 6,309 to 8,530 feet (1,923 to 2,600m) above sea level.
