I proposed to my partner while on the Maid of the Mist at Niagara. We are civil partners from England. He said yes and the rest is history. It will always have a special place in our hearts.
Hi, Can anyone help me? I’m looking to identify a waterfall. I have a pic of me but I don’t remember when or where I was when it was taken. If you can help, thanks everyone
I visited Hawaii an Islands through NCL on the Pride of America Ship (11 Dec.2009 -22 Dec.2009). It was the best vacation I’ve ever done in my life! I departed my home city Amman, Jordan on RJ airlines to Chicago on 30 Nov. 2009 then connected on United airlines to Dallas, Texas where i spent […]
I realize we’re talking about movies, but there’s a very beautiful waterfall that is shown every now and then on the tv show LOST. The falls is somewhere in Hawaii (they film the show there). I’m not sure what the name of it is though. Chris
Some of the best waterfalls I have seen are in Oregon. But I do like falls in Arkansas. Gloryhole Falls is the best and most unique small waterfall that I have ever seen. Below is a picture of falls in Oregon. We think less than 30 people have ever seen these falls. Our guide discovered […]
My husband and I rented a car and drove to the end of every road we could find on four (4) Hawaiian Islands. We found a wonderful surprise on each path we took! On Kauai, we found the beautiful Wailua Falls. The dangers of actually climbing down the jagged rock face and getting to the […]
Dear Mr Cheng, Thanks for the easy to understand and very well done article on the formation of waterfalls. I teach people how to paint outdoors and waterfalls are my specialty. I take my students to water sites and help them draw and paint directly from nature. When we understand the forces that shape rocks […]
My husband and I visited my parents in Venezuela in 1965. Dad was on loan to a Venezuelan steel company and as he and my step-mother lived in Caracas and the plant was in Puerto Ordaz, they had access to a small plane. I don’t remember the make (think it was a Cessna) but there […]
What are the advantages people get from the existence of a waterfall?
What about Tugela Falls in South Africa??? Wasn’t that number 2???
The first time I saw Iquacu Falls was from a small jet in 1985. It was my first trip to South America and shamefully I did not know of the Falls. We were flying over a muddy river for a while and it began to appear like a delta…it was splitting into fingers. Then the […]
I want to know if there is a special name for waterfalls which can go both directions e.g. in a tidal narrows between a lake and the sea, where water builds up in the lake and falls into the sea, then, as the tide turns, the process is reversed. Catriona Malan
On our way from USA to Antarctica we purposely made a stop at the Iquazu Falls on the advice of a friend – and it was MORE than worth the trip! We live outside of Buffalo, NY so have been to the Niagara Falls any number of times. I have seen marvelous waterfalls in Iceland, […]
We were there in 1993 and viewed many waterfalls during our trip by car around the Haugesund, Bergen, Voss areas. The year we were there was a particularly heavy rainfall year and the waterfalls were powerful and very wet when we stood at the bottom to view and take pictures. I still get goosebumps when […]
Plitvice National Park beats at least half of these listed above for its beauty! Hundreds of waterfalls come down 16 amazing lakes. This seems to be a list of World’s biggest waterfalls and not prettiest.
I am looking for a photo of a real waterfall that is completely round like a circle with the pool in the middle. Have you seen one like this? Luisa
Definitely Kaieteur Falls in Guyana. The Kaieteur Falls is the tallest sheer drop waterfalls in the world. No doubt about it. Have visited Angel Falls, but it flows in steps. Kaieteur Falls is definitely more impressive for its volume.
I’ve noticed that the rim of many wide powerful waterfalls seem to have a horseshoe shape across their widths. Why is that?
When my father was alive, his family in Norway contacted him, stating that he had a lot of family there. His father came to the states at age 17 by himself and changed his last name. So when they contacted my father, they asked, “why do you go by the name Olson when your last […]
I was there when I was 17… and it was the most amazing thing I`ve ever seen in this world!!!! they are really great and deserve to be on the top!!! I was on both side… and Brazil rocks!!!!
