Full description
Travel deep into the Andean jungle on a 3-hour trek to see the great sights of El Chiflón and La Chorrera waterfalls. After meeting your experienced bilingual guide in Bogotá, you’ll drive past the East Hills and stop to take pictures of the paramo of Cruz Verde.   Arrive in the countryside and begin the approximately 3-hour round-trip hike through the lush, green Andean forest, learning about the native life and plants of the area. After about 30 minutes, you’ll arrive at the first waterfall, El Chiflón. Stand behind the rushing water, and feel the refreshing shower seemingly coming from the sky.   Continue your trek for approximately another hour to the 1,936-foot (590-meter) wall of cascading water that is La Chorrera. Take in the breathtaking sight of Colombia's mightiest waterfall amid a wonderland of natural beauty.     Throughout the hike, see and learn about the colorful birds hidden at the top of the trees and breathe in the clean air in this spectacular landscape.   This tour also includes local Colombian breakfast and lunch, as well as a sampling of cheese produced by local farmers.

It was not an easy hike but it was worth it. The view is so beautiful. It wasn't hot but not cold either and we had good weather. Our guide was excellent and very attentive and helpful and fun. He was very patient and kept a good pace. We all really enjoyed this hiking.

We had such a great time visiting La Chorrera and just a magical day overall. Our guide Freddy was so friendly, knowledgeable and genuine. We ended up spending extra time on the hike, getting to see some additional parts of the park, and he never rushed us or made us feel like we had to skip anything. I went on this adventure by myself, but made some new friends and we just had such a great group and wonderful day. You cannot believe this amazing natural park is just outside Bogota. Highly recommend!

My fiancee and I had the best time with our guide Yuly. We met at the hostel/hotel and then went to get breakfast. The breakfast was at a local spot and it was great. We had option of tamales, caldo de costilla, and eggs, coffee, juice or chocolate. Afterwards, we went to Choachi and had some stops to learn more about the native plants and their properties; we also had the opportunity to try the coca leaf to help with elevation sickness. Throughout the breakfast/lunch, car ride, and hike, Yuly was very talkative, knowledgeable, and informative about the indigenous culture, the Andean mountains, the Chorrera, and the food. Yuly was also very responsive when we slowed down or stumbled over steps and she walked at a great pace for my partner and I. We also had the best arepas with guava and cheese of our lives!
