Encontro das Aguas = Meeting of Waters

Fascinating and mysterious, the meeting of the water refers to the joining of two great rivers of different colors: the black inky water of the river Rio Negro and the red-brown, muddy water of the river Solimões, and they flow side by side for 18 kilometers without mixing and finally forms the Amazon River. Differences in density, temperature and velocity of the two rivers cause this spectacle.
