The force of the water into this gorge, falling hundreds of feet, causes a mist/rain that seems to be falling up! Luckily this is not really rainy season - at that time they say you cannot even see across to the falls. They give you raincoats to stay somewhat dry - umbrellas would be useless. This is the largest waterfall in the world and one of the seven natural wonders of the world - only 6 more to go! This one is definitely a must-see. You can even walk on top of the falls if you dare, but the guides up there did not seem to be up to OSHA standards. It was fun from our vantage point - no need to get washed over the edge so early in the trip!
