Full Day Tours: Gocta Waterfall

Gocta - one of the world’s highest waterfalls, is located in the heart of the upper jungle in the province of Bongará in the Amazon Region of Perú. With a 2,530 ft (771 meter) drop, it is an unmistakable sentinel set in the lush jungle of the surrounding cloud forest habitat. Although its existence had been known for centuries, it was finally measured in March of 2006 after a German, Stefan Ziemendorff - and a group of Peruvian explorers, ventured to the falls despite the town people’s myth of the golden-hair mermaid who would curse anyone who revealed her location. It was baptized as Gocta and published by  The Washington Post as the third highest waterfall in the world on October 2006. The falls are accessible via a 3.4 miles (5.5 km) walking path from the small village of Cocachimba.  Alternatively there is an pleasant trek from the town of San Pablo de Valeran with great access to the diverse nature of this region that is ideal for families.  It is also possible to go by horseback.
