Kaieteur Falls, Guyana

Unrestrained, a South American monster thunders deep within the lesser-known country of Guyana (formerlly British Guiana). Welcome to the single largest plunge of high-volume water on Earth. At 370 feet across her exit, Kaieteur Falls blows out a monumental 663 cubic meters per second, immediately dropping 741 feet – a height twice that of Africa’s Victoria Falls; five times that of Niagara Falls. She pours with fury.
