Waterfalls are beautiful from any angle, but this new footage gives you a very up close and personal view of one amazing waterfall in particular. Erick Augusto recently walked on a highline above the Cachoeira da Fumaca, or “Waterfall of Smoke,” in Ponte Nova, Minas Gerais, Brazil. He shot the whole thing on a GoPro, which lets you walk along with him as he performs the stunt.
Highlining, though similar in appearance to tightrope walking, is actually quite different – and a lot more dangerous. Highliners don’t use a balancing pole, and they walk at heights above the distance where one could fall safely. Thank goodness Augusto made it across the waterfall safely!
