Authorities have now completed repairs to the walkways and viewing platforms at the most spectacular and popular of the waterfalls at Iguazu Falls, the Garganta del Diablo or Devil’s Throat waterfall.

From 2:30pm (Argentine time) today, visitors will again be able to walk the walkways and enjoy the spectacular Devil’s Throat waterfall.

Earlier, technicians from the National Institute of Industrial Technology (INTI) conducted inspections on the repairs to ensure public safety and certified that the walkway repairs meet their standards and that they can be reopened to the public again.

The Devil’s Throat waterfall has the biggest drop of all the 275 waterfalls at Iguazu Falls, with water falling from 80 metres high. Iguazu Falls is declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO and shared by Argentina and Brazil as it straddles the borders between the two countries.

In 2011, the Iguazu Falls was declared one of the seven natural wonders of the world.
