Peguche Waterfall - Other Activity Peguche - Ecuador

If you're staying the night in Peguche, it's worth it to take the 20 minute walk to the town's sacred waterfall. About 2 kilometers (1 mi) long, the trail has an array of sellers, hoping that you will buy their jewelry and dream-catchers. Along the way, you'll also pass through a eucalyptus-forested area where you can camp. The waterfall is not spectacular, but it is serene -particularly if few other travelers are around; during the June festival of Inti Raymi however, this site becomes the place for ritualistic baths conducted by the locals.
