In 2009 the multi-national Amazon Waterfalls Association of Dr. Whittman, Tim, Mike, Christa, Charles and Bruno responded and hired a village team to build a path to the Pavillion waterfall and to go on later to the Yumbilla Waterfall. This 2 km path followed an existing path below the village water canal so the cattle's hooves, being run along this path, caused the mud to be knee deep. We had to quarry huge stones, split them, haul them by oxen sled, and place them in the mud to make a dry Inca style path. It was truly amazing how much work was done, and as one commented "it was like the work of Titans"!
