FD Private Tour to Gocta Waterfall
Start 8:00 am, finish 16:30 h; duration 8h30 min.
From Chachapoyas you travel along a mostly paved road to reach the village of Cocachimbo, location of the Gocta Lodge and departure point for the hike to the Gocta Waterfall.
On March 11, 2006 a team of specialists measured for the first time this hidden waterfall and discovered that it has an altitude of 771m! This makes it the third highest waterfall in the world.
To reach this waterfall you will have to walk along a beautiful dirt trail of 5 km (about 2 hours) through beautiful cloud forest.
Walking through the cloud forest towards and away from the waterfall you will see a great variety of plants and flowers and have a change to see toucans, humming birds, the Cock of the Rock and maybe even some monkeys.
Note: For those who canâ€™t walk very well it is also possible to visit a different viewpoint, called San Pedro de Valera. Please ask our sales department for more details.
