Catarata Gallito de las Rocas literally translates to “Cock of the Rocks Waterfall”, so named in honor the Peru’s threatened national bird, which resides in the surrounding forest. Previously, however, it was known as “The Devil’s Cave” because a myth said a man who tried to take metal he found in the cave behind the falls died. Locals previously avoided even visiting this beautiful 20 meter waterfall because of its ominous reputation. For those who aren’t superstitious, the natural pool at the base of the falls is great for swimming, and the forest is a great place for bird-watching and taking in Peru’s natural beauty.
