  Strolling Toward Garganta del Diablo
by Bwana_Brown

Above the Falls, the 2.8-km (1.7-mile) wide Rio Iguazu is relatively shallow with slower moving currents flowing gently over the ledges of hard volcanic basalt rock. This also means that the main attraction of Garganta del Diablo is about 1.1-km from the Argentinian shoreline. In order to provide visitors with a close-up look, the Parque incorporates a modern steel 'pasarela' or catwalk, elevated a few feet above the river on concrete supports.

Here, we are starting our way out to the waterfall with our two personal guides leading the way toward the first small island connected by the catwalk. The photo also gives a good view of just how shallow this upper portion of the river was when we were there.
