  • One of the many falls you want to see from the bottom and the top. Be sure to take both "circuits". Water is very high in October so it was really great.  more »

  • This spot is on the Upper Walk (Argentine side) Wonderful location to view part of the falls. Spectacular. It is a small diversion off the Upper walk but worth it.  more »
