Kaieteur Falls, Potaro-Siparuni
(4.8/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Head into the Amazon to see Kaieteur Falls, the world's widest single drop waterfall and a scenic wonder among the untouched environment of the jungle. Located on the Potaro River and in Kaieteur National Park, the waterfall can only be seen by taking a plane ride from either Ogle or Georgetown Airport. The water plunges from 251 m (822 ft) high off the cliff's edge, and boasts among the most powerful waterfalls in the world due to its volume and speed. Premium viewing spots are available and you can even dare to stand next to its precipice and stare out over the cascading water.

  • The waterfalls of Kaieteur, or only Kaieteur, are a compulsory visit to Guyana. Finally, after several visits to Guyana I decided to visit. Getting here is a little epic, since there is no access roads, rather than air. For the more adventurous in a 7 to 10 day trip, you can get, by bus, then boats, and then climb a mountain, that not just the Scout have dubbed them "Oh My God Mountain". For my part I take the short path. A plane, 9 passengers, a one hour trip each way and then 2 hours walking. The view of the falls is impressive. Instead the local guides make you travel led to a viewpoint, 300 metres from the base of the falls. Above are allowed access to these, but have now banned the pass there. Also in the Park have accommodation, if decide to go and stay and dawn is a possibility, except that the company air charge you double the cost of the trip. The cost ranges between 140 and 150 USD, although they increase the cost of not completing a minimum of person.
