It is a trail located within the urban area of Curauma-Placilla in the Valparaíso region, which has been maintained as a nature reserve. The trail is about 3 kilometers until you reach the drop zone of the jump.

On the way there is a viewpoint where you can see the Salto del Agua in all its magnitude and where you can take pictures. The descent zone is steep, requiring the use of ropes that are already installed in some sections (medium to high difficulty level).
Below you can take photos of the jump.

Then you ascend through the same place, a steep slope, with the use of ropes already installed in place in some sections.

Returning to the path we headed for a road to the Tranque de la Luz, about 3 km more where we will locate a place to rest and eat (picnic), and whoever wants, can wear a bathing suit if they want to put their feet in the water or bathe / swim. Then it returns to the parking lot.

This activity will be led by Carla & Danilo who knows the trail.
