What’s the world’s longest river? New expedition aims to settle the debate once and for all

  • Africa's Nile is officially recognized as the longest river in the world by authoritative sources like Encyclopedia Britannica and Guinness World Records. However, an upcoming expedition by international explorers and researchers aims to challenge this designation by scientifically proving that the Amazon River is not only the most voluminous but also the longest river in the world.
  • The planned five-month-long expedition is set to begin in April 2024 and will use modern river-mapping satellite technology to voyage the entire length of the Amazon River, covering a distance of 7,000 kilometers through Peru, Colombia, and Brazil. They will start from the newly proposed source at the Mantaro in the Peruvian Andes.
  • The expedition team is confident in their claim, stating that the Amazon River is unparalleled in its size and they believe it will also prove to be the longest river in the world. They assert that there is no comparison and are determined to settle the debate once and for all.
