HISTORY AND NAMES
- Yumbilla, Catarata is the Unofficial name of this waterfall
This is not a high volume waterfall, but it's height alone makes it formidable. Waterfall purists will no doubt argue the merits of calling this a waterfall formation that stands alone versus calling it a series of 4 to 6 waterfalls. We'll let the individuals argue nomenclature and semantics. It's very tall, and rather scenic. Certainly, Gocta is the main attraction in the region, but if you've come all the way to Chachapoyas in Perú, you really should take the trip of a few extra miles to see Yumbilla, Chinata, and Pabellón.
