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?
I have been using this site as a reference and thanks to it, I have been to some really nice waterfalls in Victoria, Australia. Just wanted to share some pictures and say thank you.
I was working about 3 miles up the river (Potaro) for diamonds and some gold in the mid 80’s to the early 90’s. We named that spot ‘Port Sunlight’ I wrote my name on the part called ‘The Look Out’. A few miles up the river there is a rapid called GRASS FALL, and a […]
I find Dettifoss very impressive due to its power, mass and energy. I guess the grey water color empathizes this impression even more. At home, you can get an idea when watching in full-size and in HD quality, but be warned, it’s really powerful 😉
I agree Iguazu inches out Victoria Falls. I loved the accessiblity to Iguazu. See it from both Brazil and Argentina and you will see why it inches out Victoria.
10. Kakabeka Falls, Ontario -Kakabeka is the largest waterfalls in Northern Ontario, and is protected by a lovely provincial park. Offers great lookouts, easy access, and is visually captivating. 9. Wilberforce Falls, Nunavut – One of the only major waterfalls north of the Arctic Circle, a series of cascades results in a natural masterpiece. 8. […]
Try to hike to this falls, the best trail I ever went to. Not for beginner. I went to Holy Jim Falls, Bonita falls, Etiwanda Falls, Sturtevant Falls, Big Falls, and Escondido Falls.
We are traveling to the Falls in the summer of 2014. We are coming from MA. I have been reading all the reviews and I am wondering if you all think its worth staying on the Canadian side and walking across and sigh seeing in NY. I dont want to change hotels and it sounds […]
I was in Salvation Army group Home in Manoa Valley during the years 1977-78. We use to come there often to jump off the falls. I never jumped; but I was pushed off. I thought it was pronounced Kapana falls.
It appears to gather speed as it approaches a waterfall (just before the drop) but can see no reason for this, is it just an illusion?
This past May (2013) I had, or made, the opportunity to FINALLY scratch Norway off my bucket list. Friends, I am here to tell you that the land of the Vikings does not disappoint. It is staggering and relentless in its beauty. So much of this sparsely populated country is all but unspoiled. And the […]
I finally just moved here as I still at 71 waterfalls seen have 205 to go! I give waterfall tours now to the falls off the beaten path. I’m adding a few to the site to give you a taste of what you’re missing. Feel free to give me a call if you want to […]
I have worked in Amazonas during ten years very near Yumbilla , Gocta and Chinata Waterfalls. The three of them carry plenty of water for more than 6 months per year, I could afirm that at less 8 or 10 months plenty of water. Those 3 waterfalls born from the same mountain and it amount […]
The only way in is by helicopter so this spot is very secluded. On private property, only one heli company is licensed to land there. It a gorgeous falls cascading at thend into a huge pool. Lots of watercrest growing wild in the surrounding rocks. A must see.
