Gocta Waterfall

Attractions & Activities in Chachapoyas & Kuelap


A well-known feature to locals for centuries, the existence of the Gocta Waterfall wasn’t made known to the world until 2005 when a group of explorers stumbled across it while on expedition.

Ranked as the third tallest waterfall in the world, the Gocta Waterfall stretches to a height of 771 meters (2,530 feet).  The waterfall is located just outside of Chachapoyas in the Peruvian Amazon.

There are a variety of hikes and horseback riding tours to the falls, allowing you a chance to take in the view from numerous vantage points. It’s a truly stunning and scenic experience in the heart of northern Peru’s Amazon cloud forest.

To arrange a private tour or a stay at the nearby Gocta Natura Cabins, a Kuoda Travel Designer can assist you through the entire planning process. Contact us today for a free Peru trip quote.
