2 reviews of Madeira River

An immense Amazon affluent

The Madeira River is more than 6,000 kilometers in length, and is one of the main tributaries of the Amazon river, besides being one of the 20 longest rivers in the world, and one of the 10 mightiest. There is a stretch of the river that passes through the capital of Rondonia, and at this point we can enjoy the view of the city of Porto Velho, to appreciate the intense flow of this river, its spaciousness, and it almost always has a dark brown tone from the amount of sediments transported.
