Visit Gocta Cataracts 

Gocta Cataracts is a perennial waterfall located in the Amazonas region of Peru. It is located 430 km away from Lima and as far away from all the hustle and bustle of the city. Nobody knew of this waterfall and Taylor German discovered it along with a group of Peruvian explorers. The most surprising thing about this waterfall is, you can see it from very far of distance. In fact you can see the waterfall from seven kilometers distance. This impressive waterfall was fuelled by the locals who believe that a beautiful blonde mermaid had cursed it. They also believed that if they revealed about it to others, her wrath will befell upon them. 

The Peruvian government announced the existence of this waterfall only in 2006. They also declared that the surrounding region can become up to the spot and a small hotel was built just a few miles away. All the rooms in the Stanley hotel have pictures of the waterfall. The nearest town is Chachapoyas and it is located 7,333 feet above sea level.
