The water body finally empties itself into the Parana River, which happens to share its borders with Paraguay and Argentina. The river travels over certain kilometers and falls off from a plateau and creates Iguazu Falls. Thus, the water body happens to occupy the position of quite a famed river. The waterway also passes through several beautiful waterfalls and the celebrated Iguazu National Park. Also referred as Iguassu, which means the Great Water, the river offers rapids of varied levels.
