We hiked to Havasu Canyon last week. The entire trip was full of stunning scenery, but Mooney Falls was our favorite. One has to work a bit harder for Mooney Falls. It is 3-4 miles from the village. The climb to the base of the falls is challenging, but doable for a couple in our […]
I’m not sure whether this is influenced by the water level or the flash flood in 2008. When we visited Havasu Falls last week, there was a single plume of water surging over the crest. As stunning as this waterfall is, we thought Mooney Falls (a mile or so down stream) was even more impressive.
We hiked down into Havasu Canyon last week. You can see the travertine formations where Navajo Falls used to flow. You can also find other travertine formations where older waterfalls once flowed. This is a very dynamic place. A local news report claims there have been 14 significant flash floods in the past century. Each […]
Aside from the attractive waterfall, Beedelup Falls has great boardwalks, a radio broadcast, a suspension bridge and decent walkways. One of the more developed national parks, a bit of money has obviously been spent on jazzing it up a bit. Well and truly worth a visit, just to see what can be done. Also quite […]
The falls are of all different types. There are small falls such as this one.
As you may have read elsewhere, to do this loop you need to go to Binna Burra Lodge in Lamington National Park. From here it’s a 1.9km walk to the actual loop itself (16kms). For the first few kilometres there’s some lovely rainforest and then you reach Coomera Falls. From here on for the next […]
It was a beautiful sunny day when a friend and I recently walked along the Clinton River, Day2 Milford Sound track NZ, on the way to Mintaro Hut. We had very early on noticed the Hirere Falls jetting out like a fire hose from the mountain. After passing the guided walkers’ stop-off at Hirere Hut, […]
I absolutely loved the scenery of this whole hike and destination. It was very confusing to get there and we had to make a few U-Turns, but it was definitely worth the frustration of driving there. The hike was a short one, not more than a mile and a half long, and not strenuous in […]
The Canyon Trail was closed last summer when we visited, but there were still some small waterfalls upstream from McWay Falls that I could get to.
I agree that the California coast is a unique place in the world. I spent a couple days in the Big Sur area last summer.
Private, Serene, and Magical. Our pick for the most beautiful waterfall on the Big Island.
Roaring Billy Waterfalls track is a lovely bush walk into this waterfall, but mind the sandflies, they are voracious. It’s worth walking over the stones to the river edge, the view of the waterfall is much better there.
I visited these falls April 2005 and loved them. It’s almost as good as Yosemite Falls but you have to be in the right place to view them Cascade Falls. I saw the same view as Johnny Cheng. Park at the Inspiration Point (near the tunnel) and carefully walk down the rockface northward to near […]
Hi Johnny, These are the Waitangi Falls in the Ruakituri Wilderness area. The only way to get to these falls is to walk in. It is a no fly area. The Ruakituri River is a popular trout fishing river. I had a look on the W18 Topo map and it says the Waitangi falls are […]
Minoh is a city in Osaka Prefecture, Japan, about 15 km north of Osaka. It took us about 30 minutes on the Hankyu Line from Osaka (Umeda) Station. One of Minoh’s hidden secrets is its beautiful waterfall, Minoh Falls. This 33 metre high and 5 metre wide waterfall, which looks much higher than it actually […]
The Mac Mac falls are part of the waterfall route in Mpumalanga South Africa which I visited. These waterfalls were found by the pioneers in this area.
They are beautiful but Gunns want to log and clearfell around the falls and over the track – STOP THEM
The Gloucester River tumbles in a series of waterfalls from the Gloucester Tops into a very wild gorge. Apparently there is a much bigger fall downstream of this one that takes plenty bravery to reach.
Rocky Creek Falls are the tallest and biggest in Coolah Tops but you have to not be scared of heights to get the money shot of them. They are an impressive sight after heavy rain.
Cox’s Creek Falls are hard to photograph requiring a scramble down into a very muddy and slippery ravine to get a photo that only shows part of the falls. It’s worth the effort, though you have to be keen.
