Tequendama Falls-An Adventure Trip

Dream Of A Vacation on the edge of Waterfall

One year back i have seen the animated movie “up”. It was the movie of an old man. When he was young he and his woman promise each other that they would go on an adventure trip together to Paradise Falls in South America and build a house there. I liked this movie so much and i decided to go there myself too but I have never heard about the paradise falls so far. I thought i have good knowledge of worlds geography. I knew all the little waterfalls in south america that no one knows.

So, I started searching out that where the hell is this Paradise falls in South America? I couldn’t find it. All i found out was some Paradise falls Bars, pubs of vegas and some more crap. Finally i found out a similar location as paradise falls in the movie Up.

I found out there were two water falls South America that were same looking same like Paradise Falls shown in the move UP. One was Angel Waterfalls (that everyone knows) in Venezuela and second was Tequendama Falls in Bagota of Columbia.

No doubt Angel Falls looks more exciting but after reading about Teguendama Falls I liked this place more as i cant make a house on the edge of Angel Waterfalls.

Tequendama Waterfall is a 132m high waterfall on the Bogotá River. It is located about 30 km southwest of Bogotá. These falls emerge in a very dramatic area. You have to make your way through the jungle and you will be rewarded by an amazing scenery! Exciting !! isn’t it ?? This falls was also a most common point of suicide at some point of time.

Haunted Hotel at Tequendama Falls

Most interesting thing i liked about this place was a haunted Hotel. The name of this hotel is Hotel del Salto. It is haunted not because of any ghost or bad spirit is living there. It is an old hotel and abandoned and its old design makes it look like little haunted.

Looks Interesting ?? Planning to go to Bagota now? wait I have a news for you. This historic Colombian hotel that has been abandoned for nearly two decades but soon it will reopen as an ecological museum.

I wish they could allow us to spend one night in this hotel on the edge of the waterfall.
