Nothing in the world of water compares to, or is more impressive than the natural spectacle provided by the stunning group of 275 waterfalls that make up the Iguassu Waterfalls.
Located a few kilometers from the union of the Iguassu River, the waterfalls awe with their size, water flow and strong current.
The geologic change that gave birth to the Iguassu Waterfalls took place nearly 150 million years ago and shook the earth crust around the globe. At the Iguassu region those changes created a gigantic canyon, full of rock steps through which the grand Iguassu flows, producing a huge steam cloud and a deafening sound.
The average flow of the Waterfalls is around 1.800 m3 per second, for an average amount of 10 million liters per second. During the rain season the stream of the Iguassu River increases and shows an even more beautiful spectacle.
The biggest waterfall is the "Devils Throat", which is 90 meters high. The volume of water poured down creates a cloud of drizzling water that can be watched from kilometers away.
During the 1970's and the 1980's, while it was under construction, the Itaipu Hydroelectric Dam was regarded more as the fruit of the megalomaniac commanders ruling Brazil in those years. Today, after three decades, the perspective is quite different. Responsible for the production of 95% of the electricity consumed in Paraguay, and for 24% of the whole Brazilian consumption, this bi-national enterprise - built by workers, technical operators and engineers from Brazil and Paraguay - proves day after day its magnitude in the national and the international scene. The first generator unit began operations in 1984, and since then the power plant has broken production and revenue records.
Besides the production of energy, Itaipu also stands as a symbol of environment preservation. The company runs the Biological Haven Bela Vista, continuous reforestation programs and projects that foster fish production as well as wild animal reproduction. There is also an Eco-museum that tells the story of the construction and maintenance of this unrivaled work.
