Cascada de Peguche, Peguche

4.3
Stroll down a cobblestone path and through lush green vegetation to see Cascada de Peguche. This 18 m (50 ft) waterfall serves as an indigenous ceremonial site, where locals carry out traditional rituals a few days prior to their sun and harvest celebration. The water flowing down this waterfall starts at the foothills of the Imbabura volcano and then travels downstream by the river Peguche after falling off the overhang here. Look for the hummingbirds, owls, small snakes, frogs, lizards, and rabbits that make up the local wildlife. Our Otavalo visit planner makes visiting Cascada de Peguche and other Otavalo attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • The walk to the falls is quite nice and there are some decent food options along the way. The falls are quite impressive and you can climb up a rock to get close to it.  more »
  • The waterfall is a short water fall of about 10 meters. Access is a little difficult until the entrance. From the entrance, a 10-minute walk. Incoming payment. Visiting hours from 08h to 17h30. You can bathe!

  • Love this place, clean Beautiful and u really get in touch with nature, great trails, only recommendation is to bring repellent if u wearing shorts or Bermudas.. next time will spend more time on the trails 💝
  • Super beautiful place! Love the area. I would definitely recommend you go to the upper fall. You have to hike a bit, and you get soaked, but standing underneath is a unique experience.
