Gocta Falls, with the longest drop at 1772 feet, have been ranked everywhere from the third to the fifteenth highest waterfalls in the world. This hidden gem lies in the Chachapoyas region, between the Andes Mountains and lush Amazon rainforest. These mighty falls are located 2,000 meters above sea level, but the climate remains tropical and the jungle remains dense.
