We visited Iguazu falls in August which is at the end of the winter season in Brazil. We were blessed with sunny weather and it was not too crowded.
We were greeted with this awesome sight when we got down from the shuttle bus. Visitors hurriedly whisked out their cameras and handphones and getting a good place to snap this spectacular scenery.
It’s good to enter the National Park early as there are less people to compete with the limited space at the look-out points. You need to wait just a couple of minutes to take photographs from the vantage point.
On a sunny day, rainbows will appear to enhance the already magnificent beauty of the falls. We stood here for quite some time just to drink in this panaromic view of the spectacular double tier waterfalls.
As you walk along further down the pathway, the falls get closer to you and the sounds gets louder.
At this juncture, the force of the big volumes of water rushing down and hitting against the rocks and the water beneath causes sprinkling of water all around. Many visitors wore raincoats to prevent their clothes and belongings from getting wet. It’s imperative to wear non-slip shoes as the wet pathways can be slippery.
As for me, in spite of my raincoat, I was happily drenched as the cool sprays of water were so refreshing. Who would not be exhilarated being surrounded by thundering gorgeous waterfalls! I was one happy person on that day as Iguazu Falls was one of the places I so wanted to visit. I am indeed living out my dreams.
I was so glad that I didn’t take some travellers’ advice of not to visit Brazil’s Iguazu falls as they deemed it not as magnificent as the one on the Argentina’s side. I would never want t0 miss this sight for anything. My advice : One meat’s meat is another man’s poison. Go and see for yourself and form your own opinion. Aahh… the rainbows…. so perfectly formed over the falls.
This waterfall marked the end of the trail and what a finish!! It came with sounds of many waters thundering non-stop but yet form a sensational melody which one is never tired of hearing. Other travellers claimed that half a day is enough to cover the falls. I am glad that I took my time and spend one wondrous day with Mother Nature at her best!
