The natural bridge of Icononzo is situated about 80 kilometres in the southwest of Bogota and 50 kilometres in the south of the Tequendama Falls, between the small villages Icononzo and Pandi (appr. 4°11'14.30"N 74°30'3.05"W) in the Tolima department. For its dimension (84 m above the Rio Sumapaz) and the form of its rocks, the bridge appear as shaped by man. Their naked and barren summits form the picturesque contrast with the tufts of trees which cover the edges of the fissure. The little torrent, known as Rio Sumapaz, itself has worked trough the valley of Icononzo.
