The Kaieteur Falls

If you heard about Guyana, it means you would probably know of the mighty Essequibo River. On one of its many tributaries, the Potaro River, can be found the world-famous and magnificent Kaieteur Falls.

Allow me to refresh your memory. Kaieteur Falls is the largest single-drop waterfall in the world. At the falls, the Potaro River plummets downwards a height of about two hundred twenty-six (226) metres in a single drop.

The width of Kaieteur Falls is one hundred thirteen (113) metres. This coffee coloured water pours into a gorge below the waterfall in sprays of mists. With an average of 23,400 cubic feet of water pouring over the edge every second, Kaieteur Falls is one of the most powerful waterfalls in the world. It is one of Guyana’s main tourist hotspot.

At the age of 16, myself and a few fellow scouts took on what was, and still is a mammoth task. We decided to Cycle from Georgetown to Lethem. A journey that tested our physical, mental and spiritual strength and cemented many attributes into our being, such as team work, discipline, perseverance and many more.

We encountered heavy rain which resulted in very slushy conditions. Hot, dry days in the Savannah, with many tire blow outs.

In the jungle, we bumped into 2 Jaguars lying on the trail, which got up, looked at us and calmly disappeared into the green. Bees, snakes, clear springs.

We fell in love with this country on that journey.

Shout out to the fellas!!

The Kurupurari Crossing, also referred to as the Kurupurari River Crossing, is located about three hours drive from Lethem along the Lethem to Linden Trail in Region 8, Guyana, South America.

The Kurupurari Crossing refers to the location in the village of Kurupurari where the Essequibo River cuts across the trail.

Note that the name of the river is the Essequibo and not Kurupurari river as the terminology sometimes mislead people into thinking.

There is a Pontoon which ferries people across the Essequibo River at the village of Kurupurari every hour.

The locality where the Essequibo River cuts the trail at Kurupurari village together with the Pontoon which ferries people across are collectively referred to as the Kurupurari Crossing.

These beautiful photos were taken by various travelers between the years 2016 and 2021.
