Gocta Cataracts Facts
- The stunning Gocta Cataracts forms an incredible waterfall in an extremely remote section of the world, in Peru. It also ranks as the fifth highest waterfall that men know of.
- Though indigenous peoples knew about this place for centuries, it was completely secret to the rest of the world until 2005.
- The magnificent site flows into the Cocahuayco River. The area remains extremely remote, and the local terrain stays quite rugged and with a heavy forest.
- Yet, that does not scare tourists at all and a burgeoning tourist presence now appears to be developing in the area, despite the difficult terrain.
I believe the first picture is actually of Lesotho’s Maletsunyane Waterfall in Africa….

Thank you for your attention to detail, as well as your patronage. We endeavor for accuracy in all our articles, of course. To that end, we make every effort to ensure that we use accurate images. However, not being trained professionals ourselves in the many fields of study our articles span ( biology, botany, zoology, geology, etc.) we are necessarily reliant upon the accuracy of our sources themselves.
When we select an image, we attempt to cross-check its accuracy in multiple ways. However, we, and our sources themselves, of course, are only human, therefore mistakes do occur on occasion. I double-checked the image you referred to, and multiple sources list it as Gocta Cataracts. However, again, it remains entirely possible that those other sources themselves incorrectly designated the image, based on yet another error.
To that end, we have replaced the questionable image with another, hopefully, better one. Thank you for bringing this possible error to our attention.
