Over the past few days we visited Iguazu Falls on both the Brazilian and Argentinian boarders. First day at the Brazilian side to give a better view of the scale and size of the falls and the second day Argentina to see the real impact the waterfalls bring. I would definitely say the most impressive natural wonder I have ever seen!
Iguazu Falls were formed from a volcanic eruption and stand at one of the biggest waterfalls in the world. Made up of around 275 falls along 1.67 miles of the Iguazu river. On the Brazilian side was the highest fall which we saw from below, Devil's Throat, at 82m high, 150 wide and 700m long. We also saw the same fall on the Argentinian side from above, both easily the most impressive views of all the falls!
The photos speak for themselves but it definitely deserves the listing it has as a Wonder of the Natural World. The scale and size are unbelievable, even the noise and power from the falls when you're next to them is crazy. If anything it's made me more keen to see some of the other huge waterfalls in the world, especially Victoria Falls in Africa.
2 busy days but onto the Pantanal next, similar jungle trip planned to the one we done up in the Peruvian Amazon but not quite as Bear Grylls! Also meeting a few guys we first met in Rio and some new friends from São Paulo so should be funny!
