Thousand-Foot Falls in Belize

1008
Thousand-foot Falls is situated 10 miles to the west of Cooma Cairn Road, which is a west-bound road that connects with Chiquibul Road at Mile 14. Thus, the five miles to the south from where it intersects with Cristo Rey and Chiquibul roads, 3.6 miles beyond the entry point of Pine Ridge Reserve, Cooma Cairn Road begins towards the east. Thousand Foot Falls is thought to be the largest waterfalls in the Central American region. However, contrary to what its name implies the massive waterfall is actually 1,600 feet high.
A dirt road, which is rougher than Chiquibul Road, it’s usually still accessible to a regular automobile. At 3.3 miles, you’ll reach the road that leads towards Hidden Valley Inn. This is a beautiful valley an isolated property that has its own set of fantastic trails, which are open only to the guests. Further, to continue for six miles and lead to a point that overlooks what is believed to be the highest waterfall in Central America, called Thousand-foot Falls.
From the overlook about half a mile away at the top of a steep slope, one can view the top third of the waterfall. The stunning setting, unaffected by the pine beetle epidemic is worth the drive; and over the gorge, a long, thin waterfall disappears into the densely forested valley below.
The river isn’t visible at all, but this is the source of Roaring Creek, which runs into the ATM cave to the north. Be careful not to try climbing further as it’s a very risky climb. The dusk and dawn hours are the ideal time to visit the falls, as you’ll be the only person to visit.
The view has an outdated shelter, with toilets; however, there are no other facilities. Thousand Foot Falls is a natural waterfall located in Cayo, Belize located in Cayo’s Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve.
