Kaieteur Falls

There were many impressive sights and sounds to experience in Guyana. For example, on our first full day we flew from Georgetown to the remote Kaieteur Falls. We flew over and around this sheer 741 foot (about 228m) high drop of thundering water along the River Potaro in a small plane before landing nearby on a simple airstrip from where we hiked a short way to the very edge of the falls. It was the dry season so the falls (see photo) were not "full" but still very impressive.
