The Tequendama Fall (Spanish: Salto del Tequendama) is a 433 ft (132 m) high waterfall on the Bogotá River, located about 19 mi (30 km) southwest of Bogotá in the municipality of San Antonio del Tequendama. Circa 10000 BC, El Abra and Tequendama were found to be the first permanent settlements in Colombia. One of the country’s major tourist attractions, the falls are located in a forested area 20 mi (32 km) west of Bogotá. The river surges through a rocky gorge that narrows to about 60 ft (18 m) at the brink of the 515 ft (157 m) high falls. During the month of December the falls become completely dry. The falls, once a common site for suicides, may be reached by road from Bogotá.
