Canyoning on La Cumaca River

Tamaira River is located in the mountains of Carabobo State, close to Valencia city. This river leads us to a group of five consecutives waterfalls; which we descend in rappel (canyoning or canyoneering). To get into the river, we have to walk approximately one hour through a beautiful tropical forest, and on the path we can see different species of birds and plants.

The height of the waterfalls increases steadily, from 10 meters up to 45. At the end of the last rappel we keep walking along the river about 20 minutes, until we reach the our vehicle to return to the city.

This Canyoning involves a minimum of physical endurance and courage, because sometimes we have to walk through some difficult trails to access the waterfalls.
