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 […]
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 […]
