The Agoyán (also known as El Pailón del Diablo [The Devil's Cauldron]) is the tallest waterfall of the Ecuadorian Andes. It is located approximately 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) from the city of Baños. It is formed by the waters of the Pastaza River that plunge 61 metres (200 ft) in a gorge located in the Occidental Cordillera.
In 1987, the Ecuadorian government inaugurated the Agoyán hydroelectric plant, which has been part of the country's power grid since then, with a total power output of 156 MW. The plant was built upstream of the waterfall, so as to preserve it.
