Orinduik Falls was included in our day tour to Kaieteur Falls.
This was a wide, multi-tiered series of cascades. There are plunge pools beneath the horizontal expanse of the Ireng River beneath these cascades so it allowed us to swim or soak to cool off from the tropical heat.
The falls flowed on the Ireng River not far from the Brazilian border in an area that was more of a Savannah than the vast carpet of rainforest on the Guyana Shield at Kaieteur. The river eventually connects with the mighty Amazon River in Brazil.
This wide multi-layered waterfalls thunders endlessly over shelves of red semi-precious jasper rocks creating fascinating carvings in the river walls and a natural Jacuzzi bath under the outcrop. This leg of the journey proves to be quite refreshing after your morning in the sun.
