The next day we crossed the border and came to see waterfalls from Argentine. I know sometimes people argued from which side you can get a better view. But they are so different! From Brazil you get a panoramic view from afar and then slow come to the highest point and from Argintine there are a lot of side walks so that waterfalls could be seen from various points and mainly from above.
At first we embarked on the small train and got to the furthest point, to the Devil's Throat.
All this water is streaming and rushing to the waterfall.
To get anywhere you walk on such platforms and bridges. Here is my husband tries to see a fish.
And there is a fish! Some quite large black catfishes, and even small alligator!
Now we are getting close and could see all the might and power of the the Devil's Throat. No comments.

After that feeling a bit dizzy we decided to slow down a bit and went on small boat tour from this waterfall to the low part of the cascade. No motors just slow drifting with the water. Our guide talked a lot about ecological issues of the region but unfortunately we do not understand Spanish. So we just enjoyed the peaceful slow glide towards the fall trying not to think that all this water is going to fall down very soon! We saw a lot of birds and butterflies but they are so difficult to make a picture of! I saw some familiar plants which usually are houseplants and growing in the wild here like this brugmansia.

Now we are far away from the largest waterfall and taking side walks to see the smaller ones.

You can see how close people could get to the waterfalls! Tell you the truth I did not get that far (or close!) as this young man on the second picture! I am afraid of hights...
And some peaceful and idyllic pictures at the end.
There are some more pictures here Iguazu-Argentine

Tomorrow it will be Bird Park of Iguacu!

  1. Галя, водопады восхитительны!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Я тебе завидую. Мне вряд ли такое увидеть придется.

  3. Оля, никогда не знаешь! Жизнь странная штука! Я, когда узнала, что поеду в Бразилию, начала "смотреть по сторонам", спрашивать народ и выяснилось, что из примерно 10 человек, с кем я работаю в музее, одна дама уже побывала там, я вот съездила, а еще одна едет осенью. Трое из десяти!

  4. С этого ракурса водопады тоже потрясающие! Видно всю мощь падающей воды. Здорово!

  5. Очень интересно-масштабно-завораживающе! :)
