I stayed one night on the Brazilian side of the falls and spent about 3 hours visiting them at the national park. I didnt know what to expect, and I under estimated them big time!. Walking along wooden platforms you realise the sheer size and power of these falls and I thought it would be just one area with one big waterfall... it spreads far through the mountain breathtaking scenery.
The next day our hostel provides transport through to the argentinian side where it is supposed to be even better. We enter the park in the morning and told we will need a whole day!..
In the afternoon our last stop was to get a small train through the park to the biggest of the falls, "Garganta del Diablo" which means the devils throat. before we could even see it walking along the walkways high up in the air taking in the scenery below we could start to hear a roar..... as it becomes in view your jaw drops to see a gigantic mass of water in a massive cutway in the mountain dropping 100,s of feet to the bottom in a mist. No picture or video i could take can really show you the sheer power or beauty of this.
