Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your excursion begins with pickup from a convenient location in Chachapoyas city, which will be arranged with your guide in advance of your departure day. From here, you’ll travel to Cocachimba, where your hiking or horseback riding adventure begins.

Depending on your riding experience and fitness level, choose to travel to the Gocta Waterfalls on foot or on the back of a horse. Whichever way you choose, spectacular jungle scenery is abundant: see monkeys swinging between trees and, with luck, spot the native Peruvian bird known as the cock of the rock.

On arrival at the Gocta Waterfalls, you’ll have a chance to plunge into the pools created by some of the world’s highest falls—note these pools are pretty cold.

Following free time to relax at the waterfalls, you’ll return to Cocachimba and revitalize with lunch before returning to your original departure point in Chachapoyas city.
Stop At:  
Catarata de Gocta
We will be headed to the town of San Pablo de Valera, located 26 miles from the city of Chachapoyas. From there, we will begin our journey towards Gocta waterfall (one hour walk). Along the way, we will enjoy the great diversity of flora and fauna, and a splendid view of the waterfall. Gocta Waterfall, locally known as "La Chorrera", is 771 meters high and it is considered among the highest waterfalls in the world. It is the perfect habitat for toucans, monkeys, mountain lions and Andean cocks-of-the-rock. It is located in a large cloud- covered forest, around which there are about twenty waterfalls. It offers a beautiful combination of geography and history, making it a magical place. We will return to San Pablo and have a traditional lunch.
