Its one of those places that many of us feel we should go to but its not necessarily high on our list. Today I got the chance to go – it is a powerful sight indeed. Apparently 20% of the world’s fresh water passes over these falls and the first recorded person to go over the falls was a middle-aged ex teacher, who launched herself (and her cat!) in a barrel. She survived unscathed, sadly many followers have suffered severe injury or died in the attempt.
If you get a chance to go, make sure to visit the tunnels below where you can experience the deluge of water passing safely by with a mere spattering of water.
