Catarata De Yumbilla - Other Activity Chachapoyas - Peru

Though the amount of water itself is fairly low, the height of La Catarata de Yumbilla-2,938 ft (895.5 m)-makes it the fifth highest waterfall in the world. The falls are tiered, and broken into four to five different sections (the number of sections is disputed). The waterfall became internationally known in 2007, when it was measured by the National Geographic Institute. Because it is tiered, it can be difficult to get a view of the waterfall as a whole, and the low volume of water (even less in the dry season) makes it a less impressive sight than you would expect from the world's 5th highest, but it is still a beautiful waterfall.
