I’m Jamaican so it makes me really happy to see my tiny island home so well represented here. As you say, you did a sampling of our falls because your time here was limited I’m sure. It’s not just visitors who miss out on our falls but even the locals ourselves! Certainly we see less […]
I went there with my brother and sister in law back in 1984. It was an interesting hike in, part of the trail had been knocked out by a boulder from above. The trail itself once you got to the cliffs was along the cliffs above the stream below the falls and fairly narrow so […]
the highest water fall in West Khasi Hills, Meghalaya, India. Is located near Nongkhnum river island.
There is a water fall on Quincy Shore Drive in Quincy Mass. At low tide the rapids head east. At high tide the rapids head west. Check it out
Some of my Utah favorites That aren’t on here:Grove Creek Falls Battle Creek Falls(Better yet, hike them both in the Grove Creek Battle Creek Loop Trail, also one of my top favorite hikes in the state)Lower Falls in Bells Canyon-puts out a crazy amount of water in the spring And Rocky Mouth Falls for repelling […]
When you begin to see how wonderful these natural creations are it does make you a little more mindful about life in general. I like how you share the beauty but also importance of leaving or working with the environment to have a somewhat comfortable life. Our biggest issue as humans is the desire to […]
Thank you so much for your very particular and detailed website, so interesting to explore and to learn about these amazing drops of water! I wanted to suggest you a few italian waterfalls that I noticed you didn’t visit, in the case you’ll be back to the Italian Alps. – Cascata dell’Acquafraggia: north of Como […]
Wife and I are waterfall enthusiasts. Saw great ones in Quebec and Ithaca area this year. Your site is great but it amazes me that you haven’t been to the Poconos in Pennsylvania which has some great waterfalls so close to Patterson NJ. In fact you list no PA waterfalls at all. Check out Bushkill, […]
I realise that you probably do not know Maletsunyane Fall in Lesotho Southern Africa. I am told it has the 2nd longest one drop after Angel Falls in Venezuela.
While it isn’t one of the largest or the most popular waterfalls in the U.S., it does have a certain breathtaking beauty and a famous history. In fact, my family are survivors of this waterfall’s historical 1977 tragedy and my sister was one of its victims. If you ever get the chance to visit Georgia, […]
The original post makes it sound as if you can’t get close to the falls. In fact, just across the parking lot from the cable car in Stechelburg is a Nordic walking trail that leads to the falls. It’s a steep scramble up, and a tough descent, but the brief hike puts you right next […]
Also at Iguazu Falls National Park in Argentina . Starring Robert De Niro and Jeremy Irons .With an amazing soundtrack .Should best be viewed on Blu Ray .
It now seems that to get to the falls you have to use their own transport facilities. Even those with full 4x4s are not permitted to make the journey. This means that anyone wanting to camp up on the site using their own vehicle equipment cannot do so anymore.
I was at the Grand Falls of the Little Colorado in 1984 at a time of heavy water flow. We parked at a small picnic area just down from the Falls and walked up to admire the huge chocolate-like flow over the cliffs. When we got back to the car later we found that the […]
Surely it’s in the Waikato? Taupo is also in the Waikato…. Just FYI….the Bay Of Plenty finishes approx. some 24 kms SOUTH of Rotorua…. And that is where the Waikato starts! and…the Waikato does NOT finish until some 70 kms south into the Desert Road…..that is correct: and that is some 120 kms south of […]
my wife and I have traveled extensively in the last decade and visited several of the waterfalls you listed – worldwide and USA. Victoria and Iguassu but not Niagara which is ridiculous since we live in Georgia. It is high on the bucket list. Agree with you that the Yosemite Valley is one the most […]
Please advise when the best time of year to visit waterfalls in this part of the country. Thanks.
Actually, the crosses are for the people that have passed diving off of the falls…
I am terrified of waterfalls as much as I am of snakes. I wont go to see them and I don’t like looking at pictures of them. I have tried making myself look at waterfalls to try to overcome the fear, but no joy. I don’t even like to think about them. I can’t stand […]
The track down to the Bottom of the falls is now closed permanently with a sign saying works vehicles only and all hand rails have been removed. But there is a steep bush trail for those willing to take the risk. Cheers Brendan
