From the bridge that goes over Hua Hum River you have to travel 6 more km, until the starting point of the pedestrian trail that leads to the waterfall.

Located in the area leading to Pucará and Queñi Lakes, it is one of the highest waterfalls in the region, due to the waters of the river located above the cascade, that come down in a 30 metre fall.

In this area the rainfall exceeds 4,000 mm. per year, the vegetation is abundant and rich in species, forming the so-called Valdivian rainforest.

A modern interpretation trail leads and informs the visitors through informative boards explaining the vegetation species of the area, its dynamic development and environmental conditions.
