Cascadas Chicala - Payande - Ibague

8 amazing waterfalls that are only 1 hour from Ibague.

One of Colombia's secret places that only the locals know about.

Hotel: Stayed at Club Campestre Chicala in Payande with swimming pool and close to the road that takes you to the waterfall which is about 15 minutes by car. Tel: 287 72 22 Cel: 317 274 38 23
Bus: From terminal in Ibague to the village of San Luis stopping at Payande. Then a 5 k walk in the hot sun!
The road to waterfalls from Payande, we traveled by bike and I hitched a lift back in a car. Its a slow drive, so give yourself 45 minutes.

Food: At the car park, there is a restaurant where you can order lunch and then it's just a 5-minute walk to the falls where you can buy snacks and cold drinks.

Waterfall 7

When you arrive to all the waterfalls each hides a magical place. In all of them you can bath and some are deep places, as much as eight meters in the main waterfall.

On weekends are more people and is much busier, but no less enjoyable as there are 8 waterfalls to enjoy,

Snake - Serpiente Piton
I did not see this snake at first as I was walking to the top of the waterfall to take a photo. A Colombian guy shouted and as I turned my back I got a photo!
