When Do You Want To Go?

See The 90 Metre Devils Throat Up Close

For your first view of the falls, walk to the Argentine side of the Iguazú National park and stroll along the lower Circuit. There are just over a kilometre (half a mile) of paths running along the basin of the Devil’s Gorge that lead you under small splashing waterfalls or hopping over small streams into the heart of the cascades, with walkways that are only a few metres from the edge of the main falls. You will be enveloped in the clouds but be prepared to get wet from the spray that rises up from the raging torrent below. Continue on the small ecological train which chugs cheerfully through the rainforest, under the thick foliage inhabited by languid butterflies and lizards, while the sounds of birds and monkeys fill the air. At Estación Garganta there is another pathway rising above the other end of the Devil’s Gorge which leads to a panoramic point with stunning views of the broad upper lip of the falls.

The 90-metre Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s Gorge) and the sight of vast curtains of white froth that seem to hang suspended in mid-air before plunging far down into distant spray, instil you with a strong sense of vertigo, a terrifying attraction that draws you ever closer to the fragile rails of the balcony overhanging the main falls.
The Devil’s Gorge is possibly the most spectacular of the 275 waterfalls that make up this astounding complex of cascades arranged in a 4 km-wide horseshoe shape across the Iguazú River which flows down from the Serra do Mar Mountain in Paraná, Brazil. This sudden deep drop was caused by a geological fault, possibly the result of a volcanic eruption some 200 000 years earlier, although due to the natural process of erosion, geologists calculate that the actual edge has moved back 23 kilometres from its point of origin and will continue to do so.
