We visited this waterfall located between Napier and Wairoa in the holiday break between Christmas and New Year. It is a fantastic sight and well worth the two hour return walk to see it. The walk to the falls is through Department of Conservation land which they have fenced off to try and protected the […]
The nicest waterfall I know in NYS is Kaaterskill falls in Ulster County in the Catskills. It’s a two tiered waterfall with the upper falls 175 feet and the lower falls 85 feet. It’s at the end of a short (maybe 1/4 mile) trail just off state highway 23A. It’s very pretty, not too heavily […]
El Chiflon es una cadena de cascadas ubicadas en el municio de Tzimol, estado de Chiapas. La mas alta de todas es La Cascada Velo de Novia con 70 MES aprox. En la folografia siguiente podemos oservar el conjunto de cascadas que juntas tiene una altura aproximada de 350 metros. No visibles en esta fotografia, […]
Growing up in Valley of Enchantment, one of the legends you must know about is actually how the heart came to be. It has been said that an Indian princess was told by her father that she could not be with the man she loved because he was not of her tribe. Her tears melted […]
I’ve just gone through your web page and blog. You did a wonderful job! Of course waterfalls are the most charming thing on earth for me also. I have visited Unchalli falls since I was a child. Still whenever possible, I visit Unchalli falls. I have visited about 30 waterfalls of Western Ghats of India. […]
I’ve seen it in November twice, and it definitely flows during the winter rainy season. Apparently there’s a sinkhole (old lava tube) upstream that diverts the entire dry season flow of Curly Creek before it reaches the falls.
Just returned to USA after a week in Australia. Used your waterfall listings and maps to make a nice day driving tour. We loved the Palmerston Hwy drive. We saw some wild peacocks on the side of the road too. I notice your location for Pepina Falls is not quite right. Yours matches the one […]
I was stationed at Schofield Barracks from 1980-1983. I was introduced to Sacred Falls by some locals at my church. My fondest memory was climbing the hillsides on the trail to Sacred Falls. The Mountain Apples ripe. I’ve never seen anything like them before or since. They tasted like an apple but have the consistency […]
First of all, thank you very much for this great site! Part of the Wentworth Falls – at the very end of the round track. I would say this waterfall is about 15m tall
Haloku are often called the World’s tallest sea cliffs. They rise 3,250 feet, a full kilometer. I ran 78 commercial trips down Koolau Moloka’i in the 1980’s but since it was summer (the only time safe to kayak) we never saw Haloku pumping. On my Hurricane John honeymoon trip in August 1995 we did see […]
I visited Hjalparfoss with a British group in 2008. We had been to many of the famous large falls and Gullfoss is still top of the list for sheer overpowering grandeur. BUT Hjalparfoss is so beautiful and peaceful. We just sat on the grassy slope, ate our sandwiches and soaked it up. It’s wonderful, And […]
Picture of Loowit Falls, Mt St. Helens, Washington.
Kahiwa Falls, Hawai’i’s tallest consistent waterfall during the Hurricane John trip. Amporn is wearing a shirt for wind protection. Excuse the quality – this shot is from a 1995 slide.
I am extremely familiar with Papalaua Falls. I used to run kayak trips down Koolau, Moloka’i and will again someday. I also made two documentaries including the falls. “Moloka’i’s Forgotten Frontier” won a 1985 Emmy Award and the US Outdoor Writers Council “Teddy” for Best Environmental Education production of the year. “Moloka’i’i, Child of the […]
You saw MUCH more water here than I did. Hagoromo is easily the Japanese waterfall I was most curious about prior to my visit to Japan. For what it’s worth, I also found the trail to Shikishima-no-taki closed, but Yusemi, the wonderful man who showed us around merely shrugged and motioned us to come along. […]
How nice to be in a very green and clean countryside… I love the falls… Dagg, Brown and Queen Mary’s Falls. I have been there 3x and I took so many pictures. You can revitalise your spirit and to be in touch with nature… it can take your stress away. I just couldn’t imagine that […]
I’ve been in Queensland last December 2008-March 2009. I visited my sisters in Killarney and my brother in law is a Dagg… I was fascinated to see all the pictures specially the fall in Killarney… these are the places I’ve been visited and took a lot of photos and memorable memories with my family. The […]
So I was looking around and found your site (really like it). Recently I went on a trip to Yellowstone with a friend and our main goal was to check out waterfalls. We saw many pull-over falls, Union Falls and Terraced Falls. The hike to Terraced Falls was pretty intense. We got about 1/2 way […]
Carlon Falls was a great find because it was a hot Saturday. We needed a place to swim near our camp (5 miles outside the west gate), but didn’t want to fight the crowds inside Yosemite National Park. We almost had the place to ourselves!
I live at Twin Falls. Most tour books don’t tell you that in order to access Twin Falls you need to pass through private property. Please show respect towards the residents by keeping the noise volume at a minimum. We allow free passage to our treasured falls so all can enjoy. Aloha.
