The Asia Waterfalls page is where we showcase the waterfalls that we’ve visited across the Pacific Ocean. While Asia represents the continent where we have our ancestral roots, it still remains somewhat of a far-flung part of the globe.
Growing up, we’ve only had glimpses of what’s there revealed to us by our parents and relatives. So we ended up thinking about the Asian continent as both strangely familiar yet strikingly unfamiliar.
For the purposes of this site, the countries belonging to this Asia Waterfalls page come from as far west as India, the westernmost extremes of China, and even Siberian Russia (up to the Ural Mountains). We also include countries that go as far south as Indonesia and as far east as Japan.
In general, these countries are all north of the equator (though Indonesia and Malaysia straddles the line) and west of the international date line, which means the islands of the Philippines and Melanesia are included in this region (even though you could argue that they belong in the Oceania Region).
You could also argue that the line of separation between Asia and Oceania is not really well-defined so I’m just going by the easiest geographical divisions and less on political boundaries, which can easily change.
Nevertheless, Asia is vast and includes many countries and nationalities. While we still managed to attain a humble sampling of waterfalls here, we’ll remain opportunistic about any new chances to add to our waterfall sightings collection…
