Hiking the falls of Giron

El Chorro1Consider El Chorro de Girón. A green expanse like the outstretched back of a sleeping giant whose long slumber has slowly transformed it into tree, rock and earth. Above it wheels the expansive blue sky, often flocked with clouds. And in the center of it all, pulsating gossamer threads of silver and white. The roar of the crashing water, which rushes down the face of the mountains from a height of over 1500 feet, can be heard from far away.

Imagine that scene. Don’t you feel the urge to put yourself in it? If you’re in the Yunguilla Valley area, or you’re planning to stop by, then you definitely want to experience the breathtaking natural wonder that are the Girón Falls up close.

Head Up the Falls on Foot or on Horseback

The falls are just 45 minutes away from the town of Cuenca in Giron. The base is accessible by a short bus or car ride from Giron. You probably don’t want to waste precious time making all the arrangements that you’ll have to make though. We’ll do that for you.
