La Chorerra is the tallest waterfall in Colombia at 590 meters. In 2016 the upper section was explored by a French team and the middle section was explored by a Colombian team. The bottom section has not been done. The first descent has not been done as of Dec. 2018


Park the exit vehicle at the pull out on the outside of a hairpin turn at: 4.59515,-73.95212 The drive to the top of the drainage is via San Francisco and could take 1 to 2 hours and is at the end of the road at 10,400 feet at approximately: 4.60247,-73.96258. A much shorter shuttle is via Tres Esquinas but involves hiking an unknown trail for 2 miles.


The drop in is at the 10,200 foot elevation. The top section is akin to a jungle stream with many small drops. The main show begins with 6 major drops one after another.
