Sipote Waterfall is a succession of waterfalls, spanning 1 km long, with the most famous section being the place where it overflows into the Aries river. You can start your trip from Sipote Meadow, from the superior part of the waterfall, and follow the travertine rock, passing along the succession flowing waters. The highest one reaches 15 meters high and the views up top are worth the hike. 

The stunning formation of the waterfalls came after a carstic, long-lasting and complex event in the Bedeleu Massif, that generated spectacular transformations: dolines and steep fields, underwater springs that come to light from the narrowest and hardest of spaces or limestone water dams. The waterfall is formed by an 800 meters mountain creek that streams down in a riverbed from 700 to 430 meters and into the Aries river.
