German kayaker descends infamous gorge in Chile

German kayaker Adrian Mattern showed off a risky descent down an infamous river gorge in Chile.

GoPro footage captured on November 4 shows Mattern making his approach to the 80 feet tall waterfall, called Salto Leona, in his kayak.

Mattern then paddles down the steep gorge, nimbly dodging around the rocks, until he falls to a pool at the bottom of the waterfall.

''Salto Leona is a waterfall with a very demanding and dangerous entrance rapid. The slightest mistake can be fatal as the kayaker gets to the lip of the big drop in a matter of seconds. There is zero room for error on this one,'' said Mattern.

The clip was filmed on November 4.
