Awesome Tequendama Falls, Bogata, Columbia


I could stand listening to that water all day!

Tequendama Falls, Bogota, Colombia


Many times there are images that come across my Tumblr feed that I want to post here, but I first try to find the actual photographer or, failing that, I try to find out some background on the image. Here’s what I found on the images above:
From the website Eyes On Colombia, is this post: Tequendama Falls & The Haunted Hotel: “In 1924, the then-luxurious Hotel (Refugio d)el Salto was inaugurated on the cliff facing the waterfall but due to contamination of the river water, believed to be a result of the popular locale, it was closed in the early 90′s. There has been talk of reopening it and restoring it to its former glory (but as a museum or even a police station) which might help rid the place of its apparent ghosts. They are said to haunt the hotel and according to the caretaker, are believed to be from the old days when bar fights on the second story would end up on its balcony, sometimes resulting in a drunk patron losing more than the fight.”
