Continue on the small ecological train which chugs cheerfully through the rainforest, under the thick foliage inhabited by languid butterflies and lizards, while the sounds of birds and monkeys fill the air. At Estación Garganta there is another pathway rising above the other end of the Devil’s Gorge which leads to a panoramic point with stunning views of the broad upper lip of the falls. In the afternoon, continue to the Brazilian side of the falls for a more panoramic view then the close up on the Argentine side, with a walkway that descends past several overlooks to a catwalk over the falls, allowing guests to really get a sense of the power of the rushing water (prepare for a soaking if you choose to go all the way out). From the end of the main walkway, an elevator whisks guests back up to street level at the top of the cliff (there’s also a trail up to the street for those who prefer not to wait in line for the lift).
