Iguazu Falls, one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature
On the 11th November Iguazu Falls were chosen as one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature by millions of people that voted for them from all over the world. The contest was organized by New 7 Wonders of Nature (N7W) and it wasn’t until that Friday afternoon that the names of the provisional winners were announced in alphabetical order.
Iguazu Falls are made up of 275 cascades and produce one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world with a height of up to 80 meters. The Falls are located in Iguazu, both part in Argentina and part in Brasil.
The other six chosen Wonders are the Amazon, located in eight South American countries, Halong Bay in Vietnam, Jeju Isle in South Korea, Komodo in Indonesia, Puerto Princesa Underground River in The Philippines, and Table Mountain in South Africa. N7W said that these are the provisional Seven Wonders of Nature based on the first count of vote results on the 11th November 2011 and the confirmed winners will be announced in early 2012.
