About Location

While the small volume of this stream would probably explain why we hadn't seen any pictures of this waterfall before, this small stream does flow all year long and can, at times, produce a significant volume. On site scouting will have to be done to confirm an accurate height of the falls, but we believe the total drop to be on the order of 860 meters, which makes this one of the tallest waterfalls on earth.
