I really enjoyed my visit to Gotca waterfall.
I made a long trekking of aprox 12 km to visit the first level of the waterfall and then go down to the second one.
The descent to the second level was really tiring, due to the...More
Take a collectivo going to San Pedro de Ruiz (5 soles per person) and then take any transport going toward San Pablo. The hike takes about 4-5 hours in total. Both parts of the waterfall are equally nice. The hike ends at cocachimba where you...More
5 hours of fairly easy trek, if its raining bring your boots and raincoat coat. Bring lots of water and some snacks, although there are some houses along the road that sell fruit, snacks and water. Bring a waterproof bag so you can have extra...More
Just take a day and go for a 2h treck to see this beautiful waterfall ! I did it under the rain and still it was breath taking. So take steady shoes, a rain coat (you never know, in dry season too) and some food...More
You can view the Gocta Falls total height 771m from the overpriced Gocta Andes Lodge, at Cocachimba, In spite of the price it gets very booked up. We stayed at the lovely Hacienda Achamaqui, on the main road a short drive away. The two part...More

Waterfalls are as great as great its their surrenders. If one add how to gets there as part of their measure as an attraction, you can count with the Gocta Falls as a place worth visit.
To start with, it is located in what we...More
Luckily we had asked our guide to get each of us a horse for about half the way, as for days it had been pouring with rain and I am no good at sports above 2500 meters above sea level.

it depends on how early does your tour starts, the time it takes to your group to arrive to the waterfall and the time that you have to go back at a decent time to have lunch (1-3pm). Considering those factors you can estimate the time you will have to stay at the waterfall. Start early, walk fast but safe (good fisical condition needed) and you will have plenty of time to enjoy this place.
apart from the lodge there are about 5-6 hospedajes (private, local accommodation, not really hostels in the backpacker sense) in the village and several nicer bungalow-type (expensive) lodgings. yes, its becoming more... More
