You can stay in an expensive hotel within the national park on the Brazil side which gives you unlimited access to the falls after the tourist busses stop running. As such, you can get excellent sunrise and sunset photos, something that is not possible on the Argentina side.
I’m wondering if creating n artificial waterfall in a pond using a solar-powered pump would have an effect on the temperature of the pond water. On the one hand, I can imagine that the exposure of the individual water droplets to the sunlight might heat them up more than if would if they remained under […]
My wife and I absolutely love this site. We have spent hours reading your itineraries, especially your trips here downunder. We live in Sydney, with our 2 adult children. Our interest in waterfalls began 12 years ago, when we were fortunate enough to have a family holiday to the UK, Norway and Sweden, with our […]
I have seen your top 10 list and it is hard to debate the choices. That being said, I would take Wapama Falls over a number of the Yosemite Falls including Bridalveil Falls I would put it near the top of the list. So what does Yosemite Falls (and others) have that Wapama doesn’t have. […]
It is generally accepted as the world’s second-tallest waterfall(though, as per point below, there is an argument that it is actually the tallest waterfall in the world, rather than Venezuela’s Angel Falls). The combined total drop of its five distinct free-leaping falls is 948 m (3,110 ft). At the right time of year, they are […]
We visited Skogafoss this year and made aerial video
The stand of Sequoia trees you referred to is not far away indeed. When returning to the paved road (Mesquito Ridge Rd) just turn left. It will take you toward French Meadow Lake and the park with the Sequoias will be on your right about 15 minutes or so up the road. I believe it’s […]
Does anyone remember this place back in the 80’s just about 100 yards up the road f on the trail leading to the falls, my aunt and uncle use to on it back then I used to be one Of the cooks, my friend Donald was a waiter , we were like 13 years old, […]
Great report but the photograph accompanied by “This was some interesting rock formation near where I suspect the trailhead for the hard hike to Eas a’ Chual Aluinn was” is about a quarter of a mile north of the start of the walk in to Eas a’ Chual Aluinn. We always comment on this feature […]
It was one evening many years ago,I had my Girlfriend at the time, We were there and no one else was there, we could not believe it as it is a very populate place, My Girlfriend was a little bit unsure about going on the Bridge just in case something happened, I told that it […]
I grew up going to Mineral King with a family whose lineage goes back to one of the original miners. They call this waterfall the Three Sisters and I have known it by this name my whole life. Figured I would pass along this information since you didn’t know the name!
Hey Hikers, Most of the Stoners from Cerritos, CA. used to hike up there back in the late ’70s & early ’80s to party. This was before the Factory came along & messed up the beginning of the Canyon. Back then we used to call it Marijuana Falls because there were stories that it used […]
What is the average speed of a waterfall?
we visited Igassu falls last year we were in awe of the natural beauty and splendor of both sides it was spectacular and we would not have missed the experience it is also worthwhile noting that for UK a visa is not required for ether brazil or argentina so I would wholy recommend a visit
Wainui Falls, Golden Bay, Tasman are a absolute gem with clear water and loads of swimming holes along the river to refresh!
The waterfall at Ardvreck isn’t seasonal it’s one of those that doesn’t seem to very much in flow whatever the weather. The flow out seems to bear no relation to the flow in, on that one. Just below it on the grass is the remains of a millstone – though there’s no record of a […]
There’s a scene near the beginning of the Hallmark movie “A Bone to Pick”. It shows a street with a waterfall in the background. Does anyone know where it is? I’ve attached a screen shot. Thanks
Hi, I am convinced that Tugela Falls is taller than Angel. Not as a single drop, but counting its five tiers which are very close to one another. Everyone I have spoken to who has seen both says Tugela looks taller to the naked eye, and evidence agrees with this assessment. With the Angel Falls […]
Thank you so much for all the pictures of Vernal Falls and the commentary. We walked up the trail the first of February, 1959 when we were on our honeymoon. A couple days later the snow fell so it was good we went there when we did. I purchased a poster of the Falls, had […]
