The postcard was elected one of the seven natural wonders of the world, after a campaign organized by a Swiss foundation ‘New 7 Wonders’.
Through the trail, visitors can stroll through the park and access viewpoints, allowing a panoramic view of the waterfalls. The trail of 1.2 km has moderate difficulty, but rewards those who venture through it. At the end of the course, the Devil’s Throat walkway leads visitors up to the most breathtaking falls with a height of 80 m. Besides the tour trail, visitors can practice tree climbing, rafting, rappelling, and have a privileged view of the park with a helicopter tour.
