Cataratas del Iguazú in Iguazú National Park, from the Brazil side, South America. Photo taken in the middle of November 2005.

 

The waterfalls are situated on the border of Brazil and Argentina and has 275 waterfalls in an 3 km long halfmoon. All the waterfalls are in Argentine territory and reach an average height of 40 and 80 meters. Discovered by the Spaniards in 1541.

 

Hard to describe the feelings when you're watching all that water falling! So beautiful so there is no word for it! And what a sound!

 

This must be the worlds most beautiful waterfalls - it certainly beats the Niagara falls thousands times!!!

 

Declared World Heritage in 1984, Iguazú National Park covers 67.000 hectares of tropical rain forest.
