Address -: Gocta Cataracts waterfall ,Chachapoyas in Amazonas ,Peru, South America

Gocta (Spanish: Catarata del Gocta) is a perennial waterfall with two drops located in Peru's province of Chachapoyas in Amazonas, approximately 700 kilometres (430 mi) to the northeast of Lima. It flows into the Cocahuayco River. Although the waterfall had been well known to locals for centuries (it is in full view of a nearby village), its existence was not made known to the world until after an expedition made in 2005 by a German, Stefan Ziemendorff, with a group of Peruvian explorers.
Gocta Ranked as the third-tallest free-leaping waterfall in the world after
 Angel Falls  in Venezuela and Tugela Falls in South Africa.
