Nature Wonders IGUAZU Waterfalls
The waterfalls of Iguazu are one of the most impressive natural wonders on our planet as well as providing a natural border between two countries, Argentina and Brazil.
From a wide expanse of nearly 3 kilometres, the water plunges down into the depths below and creates a thunderous roar amid the tropical scenery.
The Rio Iguazu has its source in the Serra Do Mar and on its 1,300 kilometre journey, it is fed by 30 tributaries. Up to 80 metres above sea level, around 270 waterfalls form prior to reuniting in a pool below.
The subtropical climate, surrounding rain forest and lush vegetation provides the perfect habitat for many kinds of plant and animal life. Sunlight shines out in the spray of the water masses and creates an array of wonderful rainbows, a constant natural spectacle.
Roaring curtains of water, thunderous noise, glittering spray is all created by the mighty, natural wonder that is the Iguazu Waterfalls!
