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.
