Ireng River, Guyana

The smooth, dark waters of the Ireng flow from the Pakaraima Mountains down through the great savannahs of Guyana and Brazil, forming the boundary between the two countries. Eventually it joins Brazil’s Rio Branco, which in turn flows into the Rio Negro, one of the main tributaries of the Amazon.
