Welcome to Cajabamba

Several sights are within striking distance of Cajabamba, including the fetching mountain lagoon of Quengococha. You'll need transport to get you close to the lake, though the last few kilometers can be hiked. Slightly further afield, but worth a visit is the Cascada Cochecorral, an elegant layered waterfall that appears as though the river is flowing down a massive flight of concrete stairs. There is very little tourism infrastructure in town, but the alcaldía (mayor's office) on the main plaza may be able to assist with organizing transport and a guide.
