HISTORY AND NAMES
- Also Known as: Guaíra Falls, Salto das Sete Quedas
- Guaíra, Salto del is the Unofficial name of this waterfall
Were this waterfall still free flowing, we've no doubt it would be in the top 10 world wide, and number one wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility.
The height figure of 374 feet is often seen, but is erroneous. The river lost 374 feet of elevation in a 20 mile stretch of river including the 130 feet of Salto del Guaíra and the rapids downriver.
