Kaieteur, the world's most remote Large Waterfall!
A 250M/800F Giant Single drop waterfall
Kaieteur Falls in Guyana is one of the last remote big waterfalls left in this world. While waterfalls Like Niagra, Victoria and Iguacu are beautiful they have also lost part of their magic since they are so popular and surrounded by towns/cities and hotels. Kaieteur on the other hand is in the middle of the rainforest in Guyana near the border of Venezuela with no human settlements nearby this is really an amazing place to discover.
With Its 250 meter/800 foot drop Kaieteur is the largest single drop waterfall in the world. With a deafening force it drops itself in to the canyon. it is an awesome sight to behold. In the surrounding jungle you have good chances to see the famous Cock of the Rock bird as well as golden Poison dart frogs. The place is so isolated that it only has a small dirt airstrip nearby. No towns, no big groups of tourist, no roads.
HOW TO GET THERE
The easy way? By Plane
The Easiest way is to join a half day trip from Georgetown. There are 2 trips a day with small 16 seater aircrafts that take you to the waterfall. The flight takes about 1 hour and you spent about 2 hours at the site. The trip has recently increased in price and costs around 250 US$ per person but now also visits a second waterfall called Orinduik Falls..
THE HARD WAY? JOIN A 5 DAY EXPEDITION!
You can join an amazing 5 journey to the Waterfall leaving from Georgetown in 4X4 while camping on the way as you go. You will continue by boat and the last 2 days you will be hiking up to the waterfall and fly back in a small plane. This is really an amazing experience and worth it all the way!
