Are You New Here?
Hi! Welcome to the World of Waterfalls – an inspirational and informative website started by Julie and myself (Johnny). In this website, we share our waterfall-related experiences and musings from our waterfall-themed travels around the world. Explore the world of waterfalls and orient yourself by browsing through some of the writeups and buttons we’ve put together for you down below.
THE WATERFALLER NEWSLETTER
The World of Waterfalls is a very large website. So it’s quite easy to get lost in the wealth of information that’s on here.
That’s why we’ve introduced The Waterfaller Newsletter so we can curate the information and deliver it to you in bite-sized chunks in your email inbox.
You'll also get exclusive content like...
- Waterfall Wednesdays
- Insider Tips
- User-submitted Waterfall Write-up of the Month
- and the latest news and updates both within the website as well as around the wonderful world of waterfalls
OUR FAVORITE WATERFALLS
Our favorite waterfalls are typically captured in our Top 10 Lists, where we go through a pretty painful exercise of picking just 10 of our favorites in a particular part of the world or even the entire world! Each list only considers waterfalls that we’ve personally visited and have write-ups about (which each entry links to).
Below is a sampling of some of those lists that we’ve put together. If you’d like to see more, visit our full Top 10 Lists page.
MOST POPULAR WATERFALLS AT THE MOMENT
This website has over 1,500 writeups of waterfall excursions we’ve done in our waterfall-themed travels (also called “waterfalling”). Each writeup is basically a report of how we’ve experienced the waterfall along with our impressions. So they’re really like a snapshot of our history with the waterfall being discussed.
In some cases, we’ve been to the same waterfall more than once. In those instances, we also provide information on how our experiences have changed between visits so you get an idea of how places have evolved. An often-overlooked aspect of information you see on the web is we tend to think what we see and read on the web doesn’t change, and this is a perspective we try to provide since the world is ever changing. So shouldn’t the same be true of the waterfalls we visit?
To help ease you into your exploration of the World of Waterfalls, we’ve filtered down this volume of information on this page below by showing the most visited writeups over the past year. Of course, you can also navigate through our Destinations page to drill down to a specific region or waterfall.
MOST POPULAR BLOG POSTS AT THE MOMENT
In addition to the waterfall write-ups, we also post articles concerning various other aspects about our waterfall travels. This can range from suggested itineraries based on our lessons learned to itineraries summarizing trips we’ve completed. It also includes educational articles as well as travel advice we’re sharing with you based on what we’ve seen and done. The most viewed articles over the past year are shown below. You can also browse through our latest blog roll for our full list of posts.
On the World of Waterfalls, we share some of the things that facilitate our waterfalling travels. These resources pretty much can be anything related to the waterfalls we visit, the equipment we use, and even how I managed to put together this website (if you wish to start a travel blog of your own!).
Below is a sampling of some of the helpful articles we’ve written, but you can also see our Resources page to see the rest.
While on the subject of resources, we’ve also provided product reviews where we go deep into the particular goods and services that we’ve used to make waterfalling (or even blogging about it) easier. Below is a sampling of some of these reviews, which can also be found on our Resources page.
OUR LATEST TRIP JOURNALS
Finally, we provide trip reports or trip journals that detail our waterfall-themed travels. Written like a travel diary, this is where you can find intimate details about what we did and how we were thinking and feeling at the moment.
Each trip journal also has exact dates as well as more trip photos not found elsewhere in the website. Shown below are some of our latest trip reports. Note that you can browse through the rest of them on our Trip Reports or Travel Journals Archive.

If you like chasing waterfalls or you’d like to support our website, we have a shop where you can purchase merch, books, or other things that have either come directly from our travels or have been inspired by them.
