Nowhere on Earth is the power of water more tangible than in Mashpi. The mist rolls back over the forest in the morning to reveal the greenery below. There’s the rain, barely there at times, torrential at others, bouncing off the leaves and into the ground. There are the rivers: grand River Mashpi and the dozens of creeks splintering off and crisscrossing the Reserve.
Though there are just under 30 waterfalls around Mashpi, only four are accessible to guests, the others visible only from the heights of the Dragonfly. With temperatures between 18 and 20 °C (64° F and 68° F), these magnificent waterfalls are waiting for you. Water is key to life in Mashpi, and there’s nothing like a refreshing dip at the end of a hike!
