The Gocta waterfall
Is an impressive waterfall that measures 771 meters, considered the third highest in the world, discovered in 2002 by the German Stefan Ziemendorff. The waterfall is located near the hamlets of Cocachimba and San Pablo, in the department of Amazonas. To get to the waterfall it is necessary to make a total tour of 5 hours (round trip) from Caserío de Cocachimba however, it is worth all the effort, if luck accompanies us, we can observe for example the Rocks cock, in addition of diverse flora typical of the mist forest. The waterfall of Gocta is the largest of the 22 waterfalls that surround the town of Cocachimba and take more body during the rainy season.
