Peguche Waterfall, Peguche

Waterfall
Stroll down a cobblestone path and through lush green vegetation to see Peguche Waterfall. This 18 m (50 ft) waterfall serves as an indigenous ceremonial site, where locals carry out traditional rituals a few days prior to their sun and harvest celebration. The water flowing down this waterfall starts at the foothills of the Imbabura volcano and then travels downstream by the river Peguche after falling off the overhang here. Look for the hummingbirds, owls, small snakes, frogs, lizards, and rabbits that make up the local wildlife.

  • Excellent site to visit. Admire the beauty of the waterfall, prepare a picnic, a camp, or a good time alone, with your partner or friends.

  • Peguche was a fun trip. Only 4 stars because the locals are more focused on extracting money from tourists than providing good information and experience.  more »
  • Beautiful waterfall located in a beautiful nature area. It is a nice walk to the waterfall. He's not really spectacular but fun to visit
