Tour description provided by Viator

Discover the stunning Chiflon Waterfall and explore one of the highest and most powerful waterfalls in Chiapas and all of Mexico, Cascada El Chiflón. It tumbles 120 meters down a nearly vertical limestone cliff, sending waves of mist wafting across the hot dry landscape. Discover the beauty of Montebello Lakes National Park, the first national park in Chiapas created in 1959 and in 2009 the park was designated a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. Your tour includes transport and a guide.
Our adventure starts when you are picked up at the door of your hotel, so you can continue toward the Chiflón Waterfalls, where through almost 5000 feet, you'll be able to admire a series of waterfalls. You can reach the highest part of the mountain to enjoy the breeze from the Bridal Veil waterfall and its impressive drop of over 300 feet. After this experience you continue the journey toward the Montebello Lakes National Park, visiting from 4 to 6 lakes where you can appreciate its crystalline waters ranging from pale blue through violet, emerald and turquoise. They are famous for the color of their waters which is unique due to several factors, among which include the type of soil found at the bottom, the vegetation and the refraction of light. The tour is framed by a reed valley, mountains and tropical jungle in which rich and dense flora can be seen, including several species of orchids, bromeliads, juniper trees, palomillo trees, sapodilla, cedar and mahogany, among others. Then in the evening you will head back to your hotel.
