Hidden in the lush green forests of Guyana are some of the world’s most picturesque waterfalls. An excursion to any of these waterfalls is sure to reward the travelers with a truly back-to-nature experience.

Let’s take a look at some of the most impressive waterfalls in this tropical paradise.


Kaieteur Falls

Hidden in the Amazon forest, Kaieteur Falls is the world’s largest single drop waterfall by the volume of water flowing over it. This waterfall is roughly four times taller than the Niagara Falls.

King George VI Falls

Also known as Salto Oshi or Oshi Falls, it was reportedly discovered in 1938. Located in a remote section of the Guyana rainforest, this waterfall is rarely visited.
