Huanano Falls, located in San Jeronimo de Surco about two hours outside of Lima, is one of the most popular destinations near the capital for trekking and repelling. The trek to the waterfall begins in Surco and takes around one to two hours. Along the way, the well-marked trail passes a few stone ruins left by early settlers to the area.
Upon arrival at Huanano Falls, some trekkers chose to go for a swim at the base or simply relax and enjoy the view. But adrenaline junkies come here for the chance to repel down the 100-foot (30-meter) face of the waterfall.
It’s possible to hike to the falls on your own, but if you want to repel, you’ll need to go via a tour who can provide the proper equipment.
