During the working trip to Brazil I took some time to Travel, How Not in the world's most famous waterfalls.
The Iguazu Falls
Cataratas del Iguazú In Spanish
To those who know and been there there's no need to describe the sense of the tremendous power of the waterfalls.
The falls are located along a 2.7 km section of the river, about 20 km as the crow flies from where they poured into the river Parana, at the common border of two countries with Paraguay. Total system contains about 275 waterfalls maximum height is 82 feet. Their lives fall in two steps and their time to more than 6.25 million cubic meters per hour.
Near the falls were founded three cities of Foz do Iguaçu Brazil, Argentina and Puerto Iguazu Ciudad del Este in Paraguay. Nearby, a dam was built Aiteifo. The vast majority of the falls are in Argentina territory can watch them closely and explore them, but the panoramic view is possible only to the territory of Brazil.
The most famous waterfall is a "waterfall Devil's Throat" (Garganta del Diablo; Garganta do Diabo) located on the border between the countries. Shaped like a horseshoe with a width of 150 meters and 700 meters.
The national parks:
Argentina Iguazu National Park includes the park itself covers an area of 492 square kilometers, and a nature reserve area of 63 square kilometers. Beginning in 1909 but he was declared officially in 1934. Brazil Iguazu National Park was established in 1939 and it covers an area of ??1700.86 sq km, of which 11.36 sq km island in the river areas.
On day two I walked on the Argentine side and the sights were great to I took about 400 pictures .
Although thet from the Brazilian side has a panoramic view of the majority of the falls,
In the Argentine side you really going in the extensive area of the waterfall, there is more long paths.
Best of the title is the devil's Throat waterfall.
The amount of water is incredible, the power of the flow of water is virtually undetectable on your body.
Enjoy from the trip
And write your experiences .
