After picking you up at your hotel located in the warm city of Tarapoto, we are going to start a fantastic half day tour to Ahuashiyacu Falls, one of the most visited tourist attractions in the region of San Martín.

The waterfall is located within a protected area of Cordillera Escalera, in the district of Banda de Shiclayo, 8 miles away from Tarapoto. This mountain range is covered in tropical jungle and it has an incredible biodiversity with species on the path to extinction, specially amphibians.

The Quechua word “Ahuashiyacu” means laughing water. The national bird called Cock of the Rocks lives in this place and here, you will admire amazing flora such as orchids.

On our way to the waterfall, we are going to make a short stop at the Cerro Escalera viewpoint where you can admire the Cordillera Escalera. The touristic transportation will leave us at the starting point of a short walk of 15 minutes within the natural reserve until we reach the beautiful waterfall.

If you explore around, you will see different types of trees, orchids, ferns, among others. The waterfall is located at 806 meter above sea level and it is two waterfalls, the first one of 60 meters without access and the second one of 40 meters high, which feeds a natural pool of fresh water, perfect to take a bath.

You will have time to chill and watch wonderful views of the Peruvian jungle. If you want, you can explore around and take impressive photos.

Later and after a short walk, we are going to take the transportation to going back to the city of Tarapoto to drop you off at your hotel.
