In one of the most beautiful areas of the Sierra Tarahumara is Basaseachi Falls National Park, a protected area of 309 square miles housing the two highest waterfalls in the country: Piedra Bolada, with a free fall of more than 1,600 feet, and Basaseachi, which drops 900 feet and is the highest permanent waterfall in Mexico.


WALK THE PATH TO THE IMPOSING BASASEACHI WATERFALL
Walk along a paved path by the river and cross a couple of bridges. Continue your walk to the fall’s base along the path that leads to different overlooks before finally arriving at the very base of the waterfall.


Bring proper food and footwear for your tour to the top and back, as the hike will require endurance. 


MARVEL AT THE WILDLIFE OF THE TARAHUMARAS LANDS
Walk the natural beauties and lush forest of pines and oaks. View birds and other animals in their natural habitat. There are eagles, woodpeckers, deer, and foxes; and if you dare, venture deeper into the forest to see lynx, jaguars, raccoons, otters and wild boars. Bring binoculars to observe them up close.


Ride on foot or bike and marvel at the spectacular view of the canyon from the waterfall.


The waterfall is wheelchair accessible, both at the beginning of the waterfall and at the overlook.
