  • This is a beautiful walk along the railway lines from Aguas Calientes. The waterfall is amazing. It is peaceful and absolutely beautiful with a display of all the indigenous plants along the walk towards the waterfall. There is a small coffee shop just before you enter the reserve.

Walking by the towering cliff faces and looking out into the tops of trees to watch the small songbirds and hummingbirds. Got to photograph quite a few birds, and saw some interesting mushrooms.
