What You Can Expect

La Chorrera and El Chiflón Waterfall Hiking Adventure from Bogotá

Get up close to Colombia’s tallest waterfall on this hiking adventure

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. Pass by the picturesque colonial village of Choachí, and its scenic town square, before beginning your hike.

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. 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 Candelaria, with a traditional lunch and time for some quick sightseeing. Typical Colombian delicacies you may sample include 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.

We did the day hike to La Chorrera Falls and it was a outstanding day in Colombia, our guide Andres was outstanding and he took the time to provide details of Colombia on the way to the hike, During the hiking experience he described all the flowers, trees and shrubs along the path and what the locals used them for as well as describing the wildlife along the trail. Breakfast and lunch was provided and was great, highly recommend this hike while your in Colombia.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

The views were amazing and the hike out was fun. That being said, the trail is very slippery, so if you are not prepared to fall, then don't go none of us slipped, but we saw others that did. We were picked up from our hotel and on our way to the falls we were offered some local cuisine, but had a big breakfast so only a taste. After the hike, we had a quick snack and then were treated to a nice meal back in Bogota. It can be cloudy, so be patient and wait for a view of the falls. Lots of great pictures and memories would do it again.

What a terrific day. An energetic hike to the waterfall but I was in good hands with my guide and driver.Guide was informed and very friendly. Both myself and the driver slipped in parts and ended up with very muddy jeans and filthy hands but it's part of the experience. Couldn't recommend this tour enough.

This was a great hike! A little more challenging than I expected but the tour guide was happy to take breaks as needed. The scenery is beautiful and untouched and makes a great change of pace from Bogota without having to travel very far. The tour guides were very friendly and fun to hike with.

Our English speaking tour guide arrived at the hotel fifteen minutes ahead of schedule. He gave us a quick breakdown as to what would be expected. Alejandro was knowledgeable, courteous and he took us on a great half of day tour. We ended the tour with a transport back to our hotel but not before enjoy a traditional Colombian lunch at the nearby home of one of the locals. Only suggestion would be to let people know they should be in moderate health for this hike.
