Peguche Waterfall, Peguche

(4/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • As a child I know of this magical place, but now to visit with my friends from other countries or with my family it is a different experience, completely disconnected from the noise of the city but at the same time within the same is a must-see for anyone who wants to know the Customs and traditions of the indigenous people and their worldview.

  • There are around a park with restaurants, shops and attractions in which enjoy family around Peguche falls. There are trails throughout the park that is very easy to navigate and even a natural pool in which one can bathe.

  • A short hike to a magnificent waterfall with observation views from both sides. The walk is easy and a wooden bridge crosses over the river to offer access to both sides.
