Create an itinerary including Orinduik Falls
The Orinduik Falls lie on the Ireng River, a highland river that thunders over steps and terraces of red jasper on the border of Guyana and Brazil before merging with the Takutu River and into Brazil to join the Amazon River.

The falls are situated amid the rolling, grass-covered hills of the Pakaraima Mountains. Orinduik Falls is a wide, multi-tiered series of cascades making it an ideal waterfall for swimming. Waterfall is approximately 25 m tall and more than 150 m wide.
There are other waterfalls on Ireng River, including the approximately 100 m tall Kurutuik Falls located more than 40 km to the north, but due to hard accessibility these falls are rarely visited.
The area is inhabited by Macushi and Patamona people, and there are a few villages in the vicinity of the falls.

  • It was mesmerizing, and very worth it. Becareful when walking on the rocks as they are very slippery. Once you get past the slippery rocks and into the water you won't want to get out!
  • The water flow was greater than normal but it was spectacular all the same.
  • It was simply breathtaking!! I can do it all over again and still be excited every time. Ensure you go into the water....its a wonderful and relaxing experience!!
  • Quite possibly the most remote and beautiful place I have ever been to.
