Pará Falls from the air

PARA FALLS

The CAURA River is one of the large tributaries of the Orinoco and flows through a 5 Million ha. rainforest reserve.
The yearly precipitation range (3.300 l/) determines the heavy amount of water transported by this river.
Halfway along the river course are the PARA FALLS, the most abundant in Venezuela.

In the shape of a half moon the water thunders 60m down between green jungle islands into a gigantic throat 7 km long and afterwards forms a large sandbank (El Playon). Here is an Indian camp "El Playon" with "churuatas" (Indian dwellings) where you can overnight in hammocks and make excursions.
