Encontro das Aguas

Encontro das Aguas, Manaus Overview

Literally meaning the 'Meeting of the waters', Encontro das Aguas is one spectacular natural wonder worth beholding in Manaus.

Visit the 'Meeting of waters' to cherish an incredible experience. The two rivers Rio Negro and Rio SolimÝes together forming the Amazon river produce an interesting display of colour as they stretch for several kilometres together without mingling. The black waters of Rio Negro containing the acidic matter from the rainforest contrast sharply with muddy alkaline waters of SolimÝes carrying sediments from the Andes as they flow side by side for 6 kilometres and do not mix. Known amongst locals as Encontro das Aguas, boat trips are the best and most popular way to explore this area.
