Canyoning / Torrentismo
Torrentismo Cascada is located just a quick drive from Bucaramanga. Head up the winding road in your private transportation that is equipped with AC for your comfort. The drive is very beautiful and steep which allows for great views of the surrounding area. Along the way you will pass a good mixture of authentic, local Colombia, and a new contemporary Colombia.
Upon reaching the destination, our guide takes you for a quick, but charming hike through the woods and along a creek, where you will crisscross back and forth through large rock boulders. After the short hike, the trees will disappear, and the most incredible view will be directly in front of you. From here, you can see three different cities- Giron, Floridablanca, and Bucaramanga. This is also the site of where you will be canyoning down the waterfall!
While you are canyoning, take your time to cherish the sight of the area as it is one of the best viewpoints in Santander. Meanwhile, your expert guide get the ropes prepared for your descent down the 55 meter (180 feet) waterfall. Next, when the ropes are secured, load up in your safety gear and get plenty of coaching, and proper technique usage from your guide. When you are 100% comfortable and ready, you will begin your descent down the waterfall. Be prepared to get soaked, and please wear shoes you don’t mind getting wet and have good grip.
Our guide will be right next to you for the duration of the canyoning descent, as he coaches you down the front of the waterfall. The guide knows every nook and cranny of the waterfall, and the best places to go depending on your skill set. You will come to a few ledges that you are able to stop and stand, while looking back up or turning around and seeing the cities. We recommend doing this, as it gives you a different perspective from the top of the waterfall. Once you reach the bottom, there is a refreshing pool that you can swim in and an area for lunch, before heading back up to the top of the waterfall. The walk back up is a bit steep, but nothing too difficult and well worth the trip.
Come join Hi Santander for this experience and it will surely be memorable, as you tackle a large waterfall right outside the city of Bucaramanga.
