One of the most remarkable natural features of the Amazon Rainforest, indeed the entire continents, is the four mile stretch during which the silt-laden waters of the River Solimões run side-by-side with the darker Rio Negro, eventually merging to form what is, according to Brazilians, the start of the true Amazon River. Besides the sensational landscape here, the Meeting of the Waters is a great place to see pink river dolphins.

The Meeting of the Waters can be enjoyed on a trip from the local lodges or on an Amazon Cruise departing Manaus.
