This was one of my favorite places to visit on Kauai; I’d go every time I hit the island; however, the land to access the falls has been gated up and it is no longer accessible unless you climb a 7 foot high chain link fence. Tourists doing dumb things–there were several deaths and many […]
We visited Hawaii for a week. My family and I hiked to the waterfall and we were amazed! We were told that the falls didn’t really flow, but they did. Both Hiilawe and Hakalaoa Falls were flowing, with quite some water, but it didn’t rain in the past few days. In fact, we actually could […]
Love this place. I’ll make this short but sweet. I’ve been to the falls twice my self. The first time it was a typical Portland day,slight drizzle,mid spring when I ventured to the top of Multnomah Falls. Not difficult but not easy either. Basically a 5/10 on scale. The view on the other hand from […]
In choosing a waterfall to try to visit, I have trouble with all the classification systems I have seen. I am much less interested in the water flow, height, or shape than I am in whether I can walk or hike to the base or pool. I like to get close and feel the mist. […]
Great Info! The Riva Waterfalls are one of our fav. too. The actual german name of the castle is “Burg Taufers”.
Taughannock Falls, located near Ithaca, New York is taller than Niagara Falls. It comes in at 215 feet tall, topping Niagara’s 167 feet. This is the popular fall at this park, however there are a few more. Along with a few more parks with waterfalls in Ithaca. It’s a fabulous city to travel to. There […]
The name Glanni has nothing to with the word glans. Glanni means the one who thrusts forward regardless of what might happen. Driving dangerously is being glanni. I guess the name for the fall means the fall flushing fiercely forward.
The pictures above don’t acurately show the main waterfall. It is very tall and you can walk behind the waterfall in almost a cave. I have seen the falls pictured but there is one much prettier and larger. It is just passed the irrigation wall you have to cross. Beware, you have to wade in […]
Went there many years ago and had to get there from the road using a rope people put there to access the swimming area. The area became a State Park in 2013.
Great hike,steepish but steady. The ‘Non aux ours’ / ‘Non O ours’ is nothing to do with the trail society (O.U.R.S.) – it is a protest against the reintroduction of bears – which local farmers hate because they kill their livestock.
I visited these falls,if your not fit I would suggest not hiking down to them.There is another set of falls ,also called Panther Falls. I have not been to them but I believe these are 180 meters tall.
Yes it is true that Sacred Falls is impressive in terms of size and location up a steep-sided valley. However, the vegetation one passes on the way to Manoa Falls is much more interesting – like being in the Amazon rainforest surrounded by huge trees. I actually prefer cooling off in some of Oahu’s smaller […]
What is the minimum height necessary to say that a waterfall is an official waterfall? I was watching a documentary about Yellowstone Park that said a waterfall has to be a minimum height, and I can’t remember what they said. I think park ranger said it has to be 15 or 30 feet, minimum, to […]
Does somebody knows wich waterfall shows in police academy 4?
I have been using this site as a reference and thanks to it, I have been to some really nice waterfalls in Victoria, Australia. Just wanted to share some pictures and say thank you.
I was working about 3 miles up the river (Potaro) for diamonds and some gold in the mid 80’s to the early 90’s. We named that spot ‘Port Sunlight’ I wrote my name on the part called ‘The Look Out’. A few miles up the river there is a rapid called GRASS FALL, and a […]
I find Dettifoss very impressive due to its power, mass and energy. I guess the grey water color empathizes this impression even more. At home, you can get an idea when watching in full-size and in HD quality, but be warned, it’s really powerful 😉
I agree Iguazu inches out Victoria Falls. I loved the accessiblity to Iguazu. See it from both Brazil and Argentina and you will see why it inches out Victoria.
10. Kakabeka Falls, Ontario -Kakabeka is the largest waterfalls in Northern Ontario, and is protected by a lovely provincial park. Offers great lookouts, easy access, and is visually captivating. 9. Wilberforce Falls, Nunavut – One of the only major waterfalls north of the Arctic Circle, a series of cascades results in a natural masterpiece. 8. […]
Try to hike to this falls, the best trail I ever went to. Not for beginner. I went to Holy Jim Falls, Bonita falls, Etiwanda Falls, Sturtevant Falls, Big Falls, and Escondido Falls.
