Gocta (Spanish: Catarata del Gocta) is a perennial waterfall with two drops located in Peru's province of Chachapoyas in Amazonas, approximately 700 kilometres (430 mi) to the northeast of Lima. It flows into the Cocahuayco River. Although the waterfall had been well known to locals for centuries (it is in full view of a nearby village), its existence was not made known to the world until after an expedition made in 2005 by a German, Stefan Ziemendorff, with a group of Peruvian explorers.
La catarata Gocta, conocida localmente como La Chorrera, es un salto de agua que se encuentra en las cercanías de los caseríos peruanos de Cocachimba y San Pablo, distrito de Valera, provincia de Bongará, departamento de Amazonas en el noreste del Perú.
