World's Third Highest Waterfall - Catarata del Gocta
Peru

At 771 m high, depending on the criteria Gocta ranks between the third to the fifth highest waterfall in the world. Said to be hidden and only brought to world's attention until very recently by a German explorer, it still puzzles me as this impressive waterfall with its thundering noise could be heard and spotted just off the main highway some distance away.

The hike to this impressive waterfall takes about 2 hours from the nearby village of Cocachimba. The valley in which this waterfall lies is a verdant paradise teeming with wildlives and I enjoyed every second of the hike.

The rainy season had already arrived and within minutes the entire valley would be obscured by a smothering mist and spray as the waterfall swelled to hundred times its size after a moderately heavy rain lasted only less than half and hour.
