Amazing waterfalls capture the imagination and inspire the soul. Big cascading waterfalls have been an awe inspiring sight ever since the first man walked down river, looked nervously over the edge, and then wildly suggested that he could make the danger jump. They are stunning designs of nature that have little equal.
So it’s with the same passionate thirst for wild adventure, desire to see amazing places and adrenaline inducing danger that we’re proud to introduce the most thunderous, powerful, and spectacular waterfalls found anywhere on the surface of the planet.
The amazing waterfalls at Iguazu falls in Argentina, South America are multi tiered ferociously powerful waterfalls. The rushing waters cascade over a steep drop. These designs of nature are as impressive as they are totally ferocious. The waters whip up a impressive mist, wind and spray as they blast their way over the drop to the pools far below.
Iguazu Falls have variety in name and pronunciation. Known also as Iguazú Falls, Iguassu Falls, or Iguaçu Falls. These wonders of nature are waterfalls of the Iguazu River on the border of the Argentine province of Misiones and the state of Paraná which is in Brazil.
The Upper and Lower Igauazu Waterfalls
The falls divide the powerful rushing river into two sections; the upper and lower Iguazu.
The Iguazu Falls are easily one of the planet’s most awesome and spectacular waterfalls. In fact the Iguazú Falls in Argentina are simply astounding to behold. A visit to these tiered waterfalls is a jaw dropping visual treat; a totally visceral and extremely humbling experience.
Prepare to be struck dumb by the power and earth shattering noise of the tiered cascades. A long chain of hundreds of separate waterfalls nearly 3km in extension endure forever in the mind. An added benefit is the rain forest setting where the Iguazu waterfalls are to be found.
The Iguazu falls lie split between Brazil and Argentina in a large expanse of national park, much of it rain forested and teeming with unique, species, jungle flora and fauna. The Iguazu falls are easily reached from either side of the Argentine or Brazilian border. They can also be reached from the nearby south American country of Paraguay.
If staying in Argentina seek out Puerto Iguazú and in Brazil the Foz do Iguaçu. Both of these places have a wide choice of accommodations for travelers making their way to the falls.
