Iguazu Falls made Niagara look like a cup of water. Niagara is great, but Iguazu was unbelievable. Great experiences and the boat ride into the falls was a thrill of a life time (even though, at one point, I thought I might drown – made the mistake of opening my mouth to breath in). And […]
Mutarazi Falls (sometimes spelled Mtarazi) in Zimbabwe – 762m has to be on the list.
I mention this place to you because there are like 12 waterfalls all in this park. So if you go plan on an all day hike but there’s different sizes one you can even walk under its just an awesome place that amazing beautiful that has given us 12 different falls in an area you […]
I’ve made that hike four or five times, over the past 40 years, at various times of year. At times, there’s a rope to help you cross the stream, as the water will be up to your thighs or higher. Also, there are often nudists here. I recall a fairly awkward moment in a very […]
I have the good fortune to have lived in Hawaii for the past 22 years. I am a private and former military pilot. I have flown past Papalaua Falls on Molokai’s northeast coast dozens of times over the years in fact have spread the ashes of several dear friends in the area because of it […]
No offense meant to the photographer, these are great pictures, this was just much more spectacular to me than it looks here. Part of that is the non-crowded setting- I was all alone here for an hour, much better than Anna-Ruby or other “public” places. Minnehhaha is worth the trip for sure. FYI I read […]
This was one of my favorite places to visit on Kauai; I’d go every time I hit the island; however, the land to access the falls has been gated up and it is no longer accessible unless you climb a 7 foot high chain link fence. Tourists doing dumb things–there were several deaths and many […]
We visited Hawaii for a week. My family and I hiked to the waterfall and we were amazed! We were told that the falls didn’t really flow, but they did. Both Hiilawe and Hakalaoa Falls were flowing, with quite some water, but it didn’t rain in the past few days. In fact, we actually could […]
Love this place. I’ll make this short but sweet. I’ve been to the falls twice my self. The first time it was a typical Portland day,slight drizzle,mid spring when I ventured to the top of Multnomah Falls. Not difficult but not easy either. Basically a 5/10 on scale. The view on the other hand from […]
In choosing a waterfall to try to visit, I have trouble with all the classification systems I have seen. I am much less interested in the water flow, height, or shape than I am in whether I can walk or hike to the base or pool. I like to get close and feel the mist. […]
Great Info! The Riva Waterfalls are one of our fav. too. The actual german name of the castle is “Burg Taufers”.
Taughannock Falls, located near Ithaca, New York is taller than Niagara Falls. It comes in at 215 feet tall, topping Niagara’s 167 feet. This is the popular fall at this park, however there are a few more. Along with a few more parks with waterfalls in Ithaca. It’s a fabulous city to travel to. There […]
The name Glanni has nothing to with the word glans. Glanni means the one who thrusts forward regardless of what might happen. Driving dangerously is being glanni. I guess the name for the fall means the fall flushing fiercely forward.
The pictures above don’t acurately show the main waterfall. It is very tall and you can walk behind the waterfall in almost a cave. I have seen the falls pictured but there is one much prettier and larger. It is just passed the irrigation wall you have to cross. Beware, you have to wade in […]
Went there many years ago and had to get there from the road using a rope people put there to access the swimming area. The area became a State Park in 2013.
Great hike,steepish but steady. The ‘Non aux ours’ / ‘Non O ours’ is nothing to do with the trail society (O.U.R.S.) – it is a protest against the reintroduction of bears – which local farmers hate because they kill their livestock.
I visited these falls,if your not fit I would suggest not hiking down to them.There is another set of falls ,also called Panther Falls. I have not been to them but I believe these are 180 meters tall.
Yes it is true that Sacred Falls is impressive in terms of size and location up a steep-sided valley. However, the vegetation one passes on the way to Manoa Falls is much more interesting – like being in the Amazon rainforest surrounded by huge trees. I actually prefer cooling off in some of Oahu’s smaller […]
What is the minimum height necessary to say that a waterfall is an official waterfall? I was watching a documentary about Yellowstone Park that said a waterfall has to be a minimum height, and I can’t remember what they said. I think park ranger said it has to be 15 or 30 feet, minimum, to […]
Does somebody knows wich waterfall shows in police academy 4?
