Hike La Chorrera and El Chiflón mighty waterfalls from Bogotá

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    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 pickup from your hotel in Bogotá and drive 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 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 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 Candelaria or via Choachi, with a traditional Colombian lunch and time for some quick sightseeing. 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.
