Many of our Sacharuna guests say how they love to explore noncommercial areas barely seen by other tourists.
Our hikes can be hard work, but are a true experience. Our guides are mostly indigenous to the area and carry a wealth of knowledge of the many medicinal plants – experts at navigating the wild jungle.
San Roque De Cumbaza
Toroyacu Waterfall in the conservation area ‘ Cordillera Escalera’
This Waterfall has an impressive drop at one hundred meters. As you hike closer to the main drop, you will be welcomed by a loud sound, as the water hits the pool that receives it – as if it were the roar of a bull. This is a sacred place for the local culture, since here the waters that feed the Cumbaza River are born. The locals recommend that you explore this place having previously made a physical and spiritual preparation. Visitors are invited to bathe in the pools and small waterfalls surrounding the main drop. Camping by the waterfall embedded by dense rainforest, is really a special experience.
Remember that all our package tours can be altered to suit your traveling needs.
‘Hatun-Rumi ‘Big Rock’ – natural phenomenon
During your hike to Taroyacu waterfall we can pass the Atunrumi de Yuractio, mother rocks over 100 meters long that resemble paved streets in the middle of the jungle. The Rumiyacu waterfall, 20 meters high and a beautiful pool, is also on the route.
