The Devil’s Throat goes past several Brazilian rapids, to spectacular close-ups of other falls. This walk has high difficulty level due to the number of steps along the way. (Approximate duration: 2 hours). The Higher Path is a 1,300-metre-walk (0.9 miles) that will raise every visitor´s adrenaline level because of the vertigo of being at the edge of some of the waterfalls.

The Devil’s Throat has to be accessed via the Ecological Jungle Train, and everyone must get off at the stop named after this waterfall.
