Not so famous destinations as another within Peru, what might be more interesting for someone. Where the last andean slopes dive within amazon basin, several natural wonders wait to be discovered yet. Visited some of those accessible to see untouched nature.

Park national Rio Abiseo, San Martin, Peru

1. Rio Huallabamba, and Caja Nahui waterfall.



2. El Breo. Very interesting waterfall hidden in the primary rainforest by the river.



3. Another waterfall



4. Wet, wet, wet, water everywhere. The plants, insects, and rain at its best.




Gocta waterfall, within the 5 highest in the world, Chachapoyas region

5. Gocta waterfall base



6. To compare its size



7. Gocta from the distance



8. The path to the waterfall leads through some nice cloudforest



9. The waterfall guard :)




Cuispes, el bosque de las cataratas, Chachapoyas

10. Yumbilla waterfall, among the highest too.



11. Yumbilla, primera caida



12. La catarata Medio Cerro

Great set! Looks like a lot of hiking was involved.

Another masterful series from you! 7, 8 and 9 are my clear favorites; with definitely a nod to 9 because of the touch of humor.

Fascinating set!
My favorites are ## 1, 3 and 10. Of course, #5 is very special - obviously a professional photo model!

Thanks for sharing these very unusual images!

Spectacular place, great set. I like the light fall in #3.
Let's hope the guard can keep this place in this good shape. TFS

Interesting and beautifully photographed set from an unfamiliar area, normally all we see of Peru is Machu Picchu. Were long hikes involved, and what were the temperatures?

There is always some hiking to do, but not so hard this time. The maximum was something like 4 hours, including the time spent taking picture almost every step. Tried to capture the atmosphere of the forests, as many times before, but I am not satisfied at all. One would need to live there for one month to catch the right conditions, and to have time to roam the forest slowly.

The temperatures depend on the altitude, 15-20 degrees in higher cloud forests, 30-35 in the lowland forests. But it was quite fresh, as there is always water falling from above, and the rainy season present.

Peru is very diverse country with so many natural wonders, but there are just few quite famous and travelled. Especially the areas, where the Andes descend to the lowlands, those mountains and forests, with almost no acces by road, are home to many animal and plant species that have not been discovered yet. The land of waterfalls, wild rivers, and untouched forests that might be those the last destroyed on this planet.
