I vistited the Kinso River on the 8th of June 2008 – and it was GREAT! The Nyastølfoss must stand on the list!
It is one of the most beautiful places I have been to… Have to agree on the bruised bums and tailbones, I nearly broke my leg coming down the waterslide (I was told to lift my legs up after I went down and my leg got stuck in a hole)… Otherwise, very, very beautiful and […]
We used to swim here all the time while living in Hawaii during our teens. Parents were military and it was great fun at the falls. Not far from here, if I remember correctly, was a place called Jackass Ginger which was a place to slide down. I believe it was a half lava tube […]
Bring bug spray! Worst place I’ve found for mosquitoes. Easy, short hike, and the waterfalls weren’t bad, but nothing spectacular. We heard hunters shooting close by, so we didn’t stay long.
This was a pretty cool waterfall. We went in early March and there was plenty of water. It’s a somewhat steep hike down a paved path and then a pretty hike along a nice stream. A great half day adventure from LA.
This was a great waterfall. After a fairly lengthy walk through the jungle on a hot day, we couldn’t have asked for more… If anybody visits this waterfall, make sure you ask the locals to take you to the top of the waterfall… but remember, there’s only one way back down… and that’s to jump! […]
Nice, easy, pretty hike to Manoa Falls. Great for taking photos along the way. Falls was roped off due to rockfall danger, but still well worth the hike. Tallest falls I’ve seen on Oahu. The TV series “Lost” has been filmed along this trail. We came across a TV set, but it was being torn […]
Malselvfossen is the most beautiful place on earth. I spent time there with a local expert named Nils Foshaug. His knowledge of the area was excellent, and he made the history of this special part of northern Norway come alive.
I appreciate a broad rather than narrow definition of a waterfall. Bryan and I have been taken to task by several somewhat indignant members of the waterfall community at large for having a broad definition of what defines a waterfall. Indeed, one gentleman rather snidely insinuated that our datum contains “all” waterfalls, including those that […]
Hi, I went to Seattle during 2002 along with my wife to visit my son working for Tata Consultancy Services, at Seattle. I was 58 years old during my visit. I had the opportunity to visit the Snoqualmie Falls. I felt very enchanted and happy. After reading this article, I feel like visiting US again […]
I had alot of fun in Yosemite. I hiked to the top of Nevada and Vernal Falls (just to tell you; I am 10 so it was alot [of hiking] lol). I got soaked on the mist trail because Vernal Falls was raging. While my family was walking up to Nevada Falls, we had a […]
I live in Høylandet and find it interesting that you added Grongstadfossen on your website. I’m sorry that you didn’t know this when you visited the place, but there’s a better lookout place where you can see the whole waterfall from a much closer place. The waterfall was also important during the industrialization because it […]
I haven’t been to many falls, but one of my favorites is Multnomah Falls in Oregon. It is on the Columbia River in the Columbia River Gorge area, which is about 40 to 50 minutes east of Portland. There are also several other waterfalls along that area that are very nice to see and hike […]
As by Aug 2008, the trail to the base of Tower Falls hasn’t reopened yet. But it is possible to get there, either by climbing the barrier onto the trail (some people do, despite the signs) or getting down to the creek and hiking upstream. It requires climbing a few large boulders though. On the […]
I love the waterfalls that looks like a bridal veil. Stepping down from Glory, they are so majestic. Also, I love the ones that are wide and and in layers across one another! They are just beautiful. Remind me of Heaven! And I love quiet and wide layered waterfalls! Sincerely yours, Sylvia
We drove past Hydnefosen on 21 July 2007 and there was a lot more water falling. I would like to add that when we saw these falls while driving on the road (Route 52 heading north/northwest), they looked very high compared to the surrounding valley. I remember thinking that this was something out of Lord […]
I know this wonderful fall since the 70`s. I´ve often been there, when I was a young man. At that time it was possible to rise up a tent between the fall and the fjord and go asleep at night with this wonderful sound of the water. Today it makes me a little sad to […]
I am 88 yrs old now, but when I was 50 (about?) my husband flew us in our Bonanza to Jungle Rudy’s where we landed in the fields and stayed with him for a few days. He showed us his maps so we could try to fly into the canyon by Angel Falls. It was […]
I am quite impressed with the website. Been a waterfall fan myself. I felt I finally found a group that understands what I like! If you catch a train from Auckland and Wellington, there are many nameless waterfalls all the way, especially after Tongariro National Park, and Wellington (All the way till the end, there […]
I am from Queensland (Brisbane) though live in Sydney now. Both Qld and NSW have had a lot of rain over the last few months and should promise better waterfalls and generally greener environs than we have had in the last 5 or 6 years. North Qld tends to fall pretty well anyway due to […]
