The Amaila site is located on the Kuribrong River, a tributary of the Potaro River in west central Guyana.The nearest point of access is the airstrip at Kaieteur Falls on the Potaro River, approximately 15 miles to the south.An overland trail exists from Kaieteur to Amalia.  Access is also provided over land by an all-weather road through Tumatumari on the Potaro River and on to Mahdia and Kangaruma.River access along the Potaro-Kuribrong Rivers to the foot of Amaila Falls involves several portages around rapids and waterfalls.  The road from Tumatumari was recently extended to Mahdia/Kangaruma that brings individuals closer to the site but approximately 30 miles of additional roads will need to be built to the top of Amaila Falls.Authentic Jerseys
