The Tequendama fall is a natural waterfall located in the municipality of Soacha.
Whose legend, according to a Muisca myth, was formed by divine action to evacuate the waters that flooded the savanna of Bogotá. Some studies indicate that this could have happened effectively, and that its formation could occur in a short time.
After traveling more than 100 km through the cundiboyacense plateau and the Bogotá savanna, the Bogotá River falls from about 132 meters above a circular rocky abyss forming the waterfall, which is in a wooded region of permanent fog. Part of its waters are also fed by the overflow of the Muña Dam.
The magnificent Castle built on the edge of the waterfall, is an history museum now after 70 years of being abandon by their owners. There is a lot of history and legends to learn in here.
But before arriving to the Tequendama Waterfall we will take you around:
The trip of the Tequendama Region takes you: First to know the San Antonio del Tequendama Municipality. The town was born in a place known as Cubsio when the Indians of the Tundama community settled down. In San Antonio you can see: 1. A thousand-year-old Ceiba tree in the park which floor is covered with stone. 2. It’s colourful houses and the Cubsio temple where the impressive past of the indigenous tribe that inhabits this region is evoked. 3. The Hermit and the Alto La Palma hills from the town.4. The petroglyphs of Cubsio in a branch that leads to the municipality and it tells past.
Second the SANTANDERCITO village. Which in the Muisca language means “the guardian of the waters”, its temple is very famous since it was built in natural stone, now a Departmental Architectural Monument.
