Had such an incredible time on our hike to le chorrera and el chiffon waterfalls. Lucky for us, the waterfall was in full force, so we got an incredible view of the full scale of it. Our guide was incredible, not only did she teach is a lot about the flora and fauna of the area, but she also along the way gave us a great history lesson on Bogota and the way of life of its people. Would definitely recommend!
