What to expect

Bogotá is located on a vast savannah formed by the east-Andean mountain range at an altitude of 2600m. These mountains have a significant influence on the city’s climate and are also the most visible geographical feature.

You'll begin your tour at 8.00am, then we'll drive for approximately 45 minutes to the southern part of the hills, on the road to Choachí. You'll start your hike through mountains surrounded by impressive natural scenery to discover the base of the first waterfall: El Chiflón. You'll have the chance to walk behind the waterfall to be involved within the magical mist - and if you're adventurous you can always take a swim at the waterfall's base. After that, you'll regain your energy with a delicious locally prepared snack.

Next, you'll head out again through the forest, to reach the most important natural treasure of this splendid trip: La Chorrera Waterfall. Expect to reach the bottom of this 590m (1935ft) tall waterfall in roughly one hour. You'll pass creeks, a wide array of beautiful plants, and you'll feel amazed by the sounds of nature surrounding you, including the splashing of the waterfall. You'll have the opportunity to relax, enjoy the view and take some pictures.

After the hike, you'll enjoy a well-deserved meal at a magnificent local restaurant. After a satisfying day out you’ll return to the city, back to your hotel or preferred destination.
