Description

The Pará Falls, or Kuyuwishodü, as it is known by the natives of the zone, is a geographic accident that abruptly breaks the Caura river channel, establishing the division between the low and the high Caura. It is the second largest cataract in the world (total width) and the largest in the Americas, with a width of 5,608 in which it divides and descends into seven immense waterfalls. The water volume of the Pará Falls exceeds that of the famous Victoria Falls in Africa and the Iguazú Falls on the Brazil-Argentina border.
