I’ve been there (Akaka Falls) in Oct. 1988 / Sept. 1992 / June 1994 / Oct. 2000 & most recently April 2009 & it was very wet & rainy every time. However, renting a car & driving on Rte. 220 thru the tiny town of Honomu, HI & buying the best Tropical Flavored ice cream’s […]
We have decided to start hiking this Summer to embrace nature and give us something to do. So we purchased a book which lists several hiking trails that lead to waterfalls and such. We started our hike late which made the ordeal a little more challenging due to the hot weather. The trail takes you […]
I was stationed at Kaneohe Marine Corps Air Station 1970 to 1972 and frequented the Likeke water falls (Oahu). Back then there was a trail off of the highway and was able to park my old 1965? 283ci Chevy Impala at the roads edge. The trail was hard to distinguish and one needed to be […]
I have been coming to Huntington Lake since 1962 (bragging rights, which long time visitors are apt to tell anyone who will listen). We usually stay a week at Lakeview Cottages on the other side of the lake. At least once during that week, we would trek to the falls. It is an easy hike, […]
In the Kauearanga Valley near Thames at the start of the Coromandel peninsula is a mighty falls named Billygoat Falls. The Department of Conservation states in their Kauearanga Valley brochure a total cumulative fall of 180m. If this is the case, then the Billygoat Falls are in fact the tallest cumulative waterfall in the North […]
We took our family on a hike to see Eaton Canyon Falls in June 2009. On the hike we saw many interesting animals like a blue tailed skink lizard, frogs and a water snake. It was the most amazing feeling to swim in clear water and to stare up at this beautiful waterfall. Then to […]
We went to Hindmarsh Falls today (13/7/09) and it was in full flow. The past couple of weeks we have had consistent rain, especially in the past 4 days which have been very heavy. The falls were raging and the power of the water was absolutely amazing to see. Highly recommend a visit as you […]
Hi there, last weekend my partner and I enjoyed a lovely picnic lunch after taking the attached picture (of Ingalalla Falls). We were lucky enough to get the pic between rain showers.
Very easy and enjoyable hike to and from the waterfall at the end. Be advised it is extremely dangerous hike if it has rained the same day. I’ve been a few times and the last time it took us two hours in the dark, led by cell phone light, slippery mud going downhill, with no […]
Shoshone Falls on the Snake River near Twin Falls, Idaho is truly spectacular during the mid-April to mid-May high season. The river plunges 212 feet to the base and spans a 900 foot rim.
Hi again Johnny, I notice there is a write up about Tarawera Falls in the New Zealand waterfall reviews section. Here’s a pic of a waterfall further upstream toward Lake Tarawera(as discussed by Steve Peake). Feel free to put that below his waterfall review. Cheers, Matt
Abbe Waterfalls is an ideal picnic destination, located at a distance of 9 km from the town Madikeri, district headquarters of Coorg (KODAGU) district, Karnataka state, South India. The Abbe waterfalls produce a spectacular sight of cascading water, nestled amidst private coffee plantations. A narrow road winding through the green and dense foliage of surrounding […]
By far my favorite on the islands, because you can actually park your car, hike to the falls and swim in the amazing pool. Its a short, 40 minute, but difficult boulder hopping hike upstream to the falls, but well worth it.
I was at these waterfalls near Matamata during early April of 2007, my first visit to New Zealand. I found them purely by accident while trying to find somewhere to park for the night. I tackled them the following morning, took my time, and was careful. It was a very fulfilling experience. When I reached […]
It is called Horse Tail Falls, as it looks like a horse tail whenever flowing. As we rarely get 4 days without rain, it flows every week. It takes less than half a day to start flowing, and continues for a day after. There is a short walking track to the top, which is lovely […]
Courtallam (Kutralam) Main Waterfalls is in Courtallam (Kutralam) in Tirunelveli district, South Tamil Nadu. It has medicinal qualities, popularly called as the “Spa of the South.” I visited the falls many times with family earlier and taken bath. Kutralam waterfalls is located at an elevation of about 550 feet in the Western Ghats attracting tourists […]
Taken 24 May 2009. The Apsley Gorge below the falls is also very spectacular and the falls are very easy to access, being only 1km from the Oxley Highway. Great camping and picnic spot too.
I was here recently after heavy rain and the falls were thundering.
Ebor Falls. Taken May 2009 after heavy rain.
Moonabung Falls (50m) near Maitland NSW. Taken after heavy rain in September 2008.
