USA side is not kept up, except state parks. Town is not clean, run down. No little food booths on street except India food. India people have taken over the city. At the falls and on boat, they were rude and pushy. They acted like they were the only ones that count. I will never […]

What causes waterfalls to form underground?
I lived in Hawaii from 1983-86 when my ex-husband was stationed there with the Navy. My kids and I routinely hiked to Sacred Falls. I will never forget climbing up and over thick branches and tree trunks to follow the narrow trail that slivered between sky-high cliffs. They cast shadows on the fruit-laden guava and […]
I was told by our Icelandic guide this ruins were just coral fences, used to keep the sheep inside after the round up in autumn. Today they use modern corals, so this abandoned one looks like some archeological remain. The only thing I wonder is how they get the sheep there since it is surrounded […]
Thugela falls in south Africa are the second highest water fall in the world. It is just few meters shorter than Angel falls.
Burney Falls in Northern California is another great waterfall. We camped there years ago and the falls are wide and beautiful. The water doesn’t drop over a cliff…it comes out through the ground. Cool!
I went there in October and when you go on there are so many tiny waterfalls but the big one is worth the hike. But go to Santa Monica waterfalls, too.
The Kjosfossen is just up the railroad from Flåm Norway in the beautiful Flåmsdalen. The railroad — Flåmsbana — takes you from Myrdahl to Flåm. Took the railroad in June 2012 with my mother’s second cousin from Fredrickstad Norway. My ancestors are from that area and had the opportunity to see the homelands…. Warren
Not sure why this isn’t on most lists?
Lovely bush walk ! If you are of moderate fitness. I suggest you take the stairs end first! Beautiful scenery and the track takes you to the bottom of the waterfall as well a the top so you great a great view! My kids loved it too!
High Road to China starring Tom Selleck. Many locations were apparently in Yugoslavia but not sure about the waterfall “step-type” Beautiful, but would love to know location.

How would one measure the speed at which the water from a waterfall falls at? Is there a tool for this?
… of a waterfall that “probably” is in the Big Island of Hawaii, that “probably” is in the East Coast, that “probably” is between Hilo and Honokaa, but for sure is close to a not small town, and that’s absolutely sure is in the neighbourhood of a kind of memorial monument or building (“probably” a […]
We have been told that Silverband Falls goes into a rock pool now. Is this true?
I am an engineer by trade but a photographer at heart. My engineering career has taken me all over the globe which has allowed me to enhance my photography. Sunsets and waterfalls are my goal whenever I am out and about. I have shot waterfalls from Washington State to Norway and a sunset in every […]
Like our host, I considered putting McWay Falls in Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park on my list. It is one of the most beautiful spots on CA 1, but it is the entire cove, not just the waterfall, that is so impressive. My list is biased towards the waterfalls I can visit more often. 10. […]
This newly discovered underground waterfall drops 58′ vertically onto big rocks and has no direct plunge pool. Should we include the 15′ distance to the pooled water below the rocks?
