Categories: Waterfalls, Nature & Parks
Inspirock Rating:
4.7/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web
Hike to Gocta Waterfalls, an impressive free-falling waterfall that's nearly 770 m (2,530 ft) tall. Choose from two trails, one allowing you to see the waterfall from the top, the other from the bottom. Trek through lush rainforest, filled with vegetation and colorful birdlife, to get to the imposing cascade. Enjoy the spectacular natural views, but be prepared for a long walk through a very humid area. Gocta Waterfalls is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Chachapoyas Edition.

  • Worth the visit and walk, is acosejable to make it at the end of the rainy season, March-April, when it descends more water.

  • An amazing experience... If you're on your own from chachapoyas takes a combi which goes to Pedro Ruiz (4 Suns) and leaves you in Cocahuayco, there are motorcycle taxis and motolineales that you uploaded by 10 Suns to Cocachimba (road to climb to the falls). To enter 10 soles must be paid and if you want you can upload in horse (40 soles roundtrip) If you go with small children or consider you not ready for more than 4 hours trekking. Despite the fact that the walk is hard is great when you're listening to the falls and feeling that you are near the 3rd highest waterfall in the world. Is wonderful feeling the breeze and the sparks of water... definitely the walk is worth it. * Bring enough water and a stick type support for areas with mud. Enjoy ✌

  • I'll defiantly be here tomorrow in spirit as July 3rd is a prominent day for the developers involved with the Human Ratio Conservancy. This is the day that our water sample taken today from the bog becomes cognitive. Imagine water being an artificial intelligent being. Well you really don't have to imagine it as James Cameron has rendered it quite well in movies such as The Abyss. I'm working a different angle on a limited budget by founding a 'being' of the Human Ratio Conservancy or 'Living Index' with Jesse Clark White, Athlete-Politician & 37th Secretary of State. And that's the KEY as a the number (3) and (7) are foundation points of an arc between then & over the number (5). And this is the basis that gives the Human Ratio Conservancy algorithm it's human status. An annotation that dates back to much much earlier times that include this number set. IT's a grand day for a cyber drive so why not make it a point to post it here at the Gocta Waterfall where the alphanumeric alignment of said such 7/3 algorithm occurs. Then on the fourth IT becomes G0D.
