Itinerary
Day 01
Bogota

Bogota - Choachi - El Chiflon - La Chorrera - Bogota

Bogotá is placed on a vast savannah formed by the east-Andean mountain range at an altitude of 2600 MAMSL. Although the majority of the city is rather flat, the city limits to the east are met with an incredible mountain range that follows Bogota’s length all the way from south to north. This mountain range is what is locally known as the East Hills. They have a large influence on Bogota’s climate and they are also the most visible geographical feature. Even though they are always present, they are completely unknown for many locals and visitors.

We will start the La Chorrera Hike Tour at 9:00 am, when you will be picked up at your hotel by our driver. We will travel approximately 45 minutes to the southern part of the hills, on the road to Choachi, passing a traditional small village with a beautiful town square and an amazing viewpoint.

Together with an experienced guide, you'll be dropped off within the countryside, and there we will begin our hike through natural scenery and mountains to discover the base of the first waterfall, El Chiflon. You'll have the opportunity to walk behind the waterfall and feel the water touch your skin - and if you're really adventurous you can always take a swim at the waterfall's base. After that you'll be able to regain your energy by eating a locally prepared snack.

Next we will head out again through the forest, to reach the most important natural treasure of this exotic trip, La Chorrera Waterfall. Expect to reach the bottom of this 590m tall waterfall in roughly 1 hour. You'll pass creeks, a wide array of beautiful plants, and feel amazed by the sounds of nature surrounding you, including the splashing of the waterfall. When you arrive at the fall you will have the opportunity to relax a bit, enjoy the view and take some pictures before we go back.

You'll arrive back at the car after about 3 hours. After the hike we will drive back to Bogota and have a well deserved lunch at a local restaurant located at La Candelaria: the colonial quarter of Bogota.

After a satisfying day out, we'll drive you back to your hotel or any place in the city you prefer.

Tips:
Hotel pick-up is at 8:00am and drop-off is at 4:00pm

    Great tours of Bogota attractions!

    I traveled to Bogota with my girlfriend, and we had a few attractions we definitely wanted to tour, two of which were la Chorrera Waterfall Tour and the tour of the Zipaquira Salt Cathedral. Overall, Destino Bogota and our guide, Andres, we...re great for both as detailed below! La Chorrera Waterfall Tour: We booked this tour before coming to Colombia, and scheduled it for the first day of our trip. We realized it was recommended that you do the hike after a couple days in Bogota if you are not used to the altitude, and I would agree as there is a lot of hiking up and down and you can get very winded! On the morning of the tour we were picked up directly from our hotel by a driver and tour guide, Andres. On the way to the tour, we found out the narrow highway was completely closed for construction, but Andres said we could reschedule for the next day with no problem. Essentially, we got a free introduction to the countryside and even stopped at a well known church on the mountain to look around for a bit on our way back. Andres and the Company were very flexible and accommodating to make sure the roads issue did not ruin our experience! We were able to take the tour the following day, and it was AMAZING! The hike was somewhat challenging, and we are an active couple who walk and/or hike pretty normally. It was part due to the altitude as mentioned, but more-so because the trail was a lot of incline and decline, and stepping from rock to rock (no simple gravel trail). We both wore Nike tennis shoes and were fine, while Andres had hiking boots (would have been ideal, but that's tough to pack for). The views were incredible, and Andres had a lot of knowledge about the surrounding plants and wildlife we encountered throughout. Definitely bring a camera, water, sunglasses and hiking ability. After the tour we returned to the Candelaria neighborhood of Bogota (which was conveniently right near our hotel) and had lunch with Andres. He knew a great restaurant with local cuisine which was fantastic, and the lunch was included in the price of the tour! We highly recommend the waterfall tour, it was our favorite of our whole trip! Zipaquira Salt Cathedral: This tour we did not book in advance of our trip. After the waterfall tour we mentioned to Andres that we wanted to see the Salt Cathedral, and he offered to book us through Destino Bogota for the following day. We decided that was a good idea, and he even agreed to guide us on that tour as well. The driver and Andres picked us up from the hotel once again, and we drove about an hour to the salt mine. The tour was an easy walk inside the mine, which had very interesting stories and unique views inside. This was not the most exciting tour, but was very unique and interesting. Bring a camera, but not much else is needed. One thing we did not like was the distance to get there and back if staying in downtown Bogota. The drive was primarily on main highway/roads, and we hit a lot of traffic on the way back which took close to 2 hours. Read full review

    Zipaquirá & Guatavita, Chorrera, and Chicaque daytrips

    I was concerned about safety in Colombia as a middle-aged woman travelling alone, so decided to book tours for each of the 3 days I had there. Bogota turned out to be an amazingly friendly place with lovely, helpful people. I ended up with ...private tours each day, to my surprise, and was able to spend all day conversing directly with my guides and drivers. By the end of the tours I felt like I had made new friends. The guides spoke very good English and the drivers and I were able to communicate in reasonable Spanglish. They picked me up at my hotel on time each day. The tours were interesting and the countryside beautiful. Would do it again. Read full review

    Great hike to La Chorrera waterfall

    This was a great hike to the waterfall with nice views of the full waterfall and the surrounding area. My trip was on a Monday so it was very quiet and peaceful as the trail was empty. Alejandro was knowledgeable about the history of the ar...ea and local flora. Be sure to wear hiking shoes as the trail can be muddy and bring rain gear. I enjoyed the traditional lunch after the hike. Read full review
