The majestic wonder of the powerful waterfall is the centerpiece of the Park and proudly boasts being one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world. Kaieteur Falls is undoubtedly the crown jewel of Guyana's interior. Its thunder can be heard long before visitors glimpse this magnificent cascade. The Potaro River runs through the park falling over the Kaieteur escarpment to form the Kaieteur Falls. The Falls has a sheer drop of 226 meters (741 feet), a total height of 251 meters (822 feet), and during the rainy season, a width of 122 meters.  More than 136,200 liters of tannin-stained water, per second, shrouded in mist and pierced by rainbows, crash to the bottom of the rocky but lush gorge.  Kaieteur is one of the highest, and the most spectacular, and powerful waterfalls in the world.
