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
Havasu is great and photogenic downstream 2 miles is Mooney Falls is nearly twice as tall and even more beautiful. Was there in 1970. The stream braids it way thru many islands making seclusion easy, choose your own. Much more crowded now days, April is the best month to be there.
I visited these falls after filming the floods .the locals said that this is the best they can remember the falls flowing . You are welcome to use any of the video on the site
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 […]
