Gocta Falls chachapoyas
Departure 9.00 in the morning we go to the community of Cocachimba, where our guided walk to one of the highest waterfalls in the world will begin. The world’s third largest after Angel Falls in Venezuela. You will have to walk 5 kilometers to reach the site of the waterfall on a trail that cuts through thick vegetation, but the effort is well worth it for you are rewarded with a wonder of nature set within a lovely locality.The Gocta Falls have been known in the area for centuries but it was not until 2002 that a German engineer saw the size of the Gocta Falls and measured that they could easily fall into the top ten highest falls on earth. The falls are 771 meters high. The falls are divided in two sections with the tallest section measuring 540 meters. The falls are located in an area about 2800 meters above sea-level which is known for its virgin rain forest. The region is not widely traveled and one of the true unknown gems Peru has to offer to outdoor enthusiasts.
We will enjoy the landscape and the dense forest typical of the high jungle, habitat of the Cock of the Rock, Hummingbirds, and the Yellow-tailed Choro Monkey among other birds and local animals. The duration of the walk is approximately 5 hours, round trip.
