Bogota, river of South America, in the Grenadine Confederation. Rising in Lake Guatavista 15 miles N. of Santa Fe de Bogota, it flows past that city, and after a course of 125 miles falls into the Magdalena. Into the Lake Guatavista the natives are said to have thrown their treasures when they were invaded by the Spaniards. At the cataract of Tequendama the waters fall over a precipice 700 feet high, and have hollowed out the rock below to a depth of 130 feet. Near the fall is the natural bridge of Icononzo.
