Origin of the Cataracts of the Iguazú

Origin of the Cataracts of the Iguazú

This wonder of the world that is the Cataracts of the Iguazú, had origin does 200 thousand years, in the place where the Parana River and the Iguazú River are united, and in which today is the Landmark of the Three Borders. At that time, a geological fault took place in the channel of the Parana River, causing that the mouth of the Iguazú River became a steep cascade of about 80 meters of height. From that moment to the present time, the point that today we know as the Throat of the Devil of the Cataracts of the Iguazú moved 23 kilometers of its place of origin. This must to the slow and continuous erosive backward movement of the Cataracts of the Iguazú.
