Seven Most Wonderful Waterfalls in the World – Iguazu Falls

The forth wonder waterfall on earth is in South America, where two mighty rivers converge. This is a truly massive and astoundingly impressive sight to see, the volumes of water involved being as colossal as any other comparable set of falls. The Iguazu name comes from the Guarani or Tupi word meaning “great water.” Legend has it that a god planned to marry a lovely native girl, who fled with her mortal lover in a canoe. In rage, the god sliced the river creating the waterfalls, condemning the lovers to an eternal fall.
