Short Hike, Amazing Results!

I had some time to kill while staying at Camp Curry & this fall’s stream ran right by my cabin. Following the river with the late winter moss covered rocks & orange leaves was treat enough as the hike became a bit of an ascent to the base of the falls. The slippery non-trail (more […]

World Waterfall Database chiming in…

Topo maps are only one method we use to determine a waterfall’s height. This is a frequently used method as we don’t get out as much as we’d like. We also use clinometer/rangefinder combos. Google Earth’s elevation data has recently been shored up, and is getting alarmingly accurate. We’ve never used the rock drop method […]

Sommersby Falls

As a local to the Gosford area, I have been to these falls a few times and seen them with different amounts of water flowing through them. Off the beaten track, you can actually get to the lower falls which has a lovely overhang where you can walk in behind them as my pic will […]

Kembe Falls

In deepest darkest Africa on the border between Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of Congo lies a superb double waterfall. Next to the rustic village of Kembe with its mud-brick huts and thatched grass roofs, the falls of the same name roar for 24 hours per day breaking the peaceful silence of the […]

I am in search of the attached waterfall. I found the picture on the internet and I would love to go there, but I cannot locate where it is. Can you help?

(Kitekite Falls) Bigger than most people think….

Hi Johnny Your website is great for waterfall addicts like myself. Just wanted to mention that the bottom 3 tiers of Kite Kite Falls are the most viewed but have attached a pic of the whole waterfall. There is another 30 metre drop above the triple section and then a series of shallow falls above […]

Mexico Waterfalls

I’ve had the pleasure to see Agua Azul in Chiapas, Mexico and El Chiflon. I think Agua Azul should be in the Top 10 Latin America Waterfalls for sure!

Escondido Falls- The Elusive Upper Falls

This hike is in Malibu and is on the website but the pictures don’t exactly show the REAL [Escondido Falls]. From the lower falls you start on a rough trail that requires some moderate climbing or scurrying up the path of steep rocks and dirt. It’s nothing to dangerous though, even borderline easy. Shortly you […]

Question about Waterfalls?

What is the kinetic water called when it falls and hits the bottom? It means the same as loss of energy. We can’t think of the word, can you? It’s like dead water. Thanks, Carol

Devil’s Cataract and Main Falls at Peak Flow

Having never got there when in lived in South Africa, my wife and I spent a few days at the Kingdom Hotel in early May 2007 on a visit to SA from Australia. The Zambezi was at peak flow and though our viewing was restricted to Devil’s Cataract and the Main Falls it was simply […]

Norway 1970 (Vettisfossen)

‘an hour later found us in the only pasture in the Vetti mountains, or so it seemed. We all sat down for a rest and the sun came out. It was lovely. I took off my cycle cape and we set off again. The scenery was : trees, grass, streams. What a change! We followed […]

Gigantic Waterfall Hole

Ahoy! On or about June 1975, on an afternoon helicopter ride with Jack Harter, out of the Kauai Surf Hotel, Na’wili’wili, we were flying west of Kapa’a and heading toward Wai’ale’ale, hoping to go over the ridge of the volcano to Waimea Canyon and on to the Na’Pali Coast area. We hit an incoming squall […]

Moon Walking & Rock Slides (San Antonio Falls)

We would climb up the falls along the crevice to the left of the falls all the way up then over to the chute to the left of the falls and run down the gravel chute. It was so steep it was like running on the moon. One step, then sink into the gravel, then […]

Waiale Falls – Hilo, Big Island – Garden of Eden

When I first saw this scene, it looked like what I would imagine the Garden of Eden would look like. I too, love waterfall pictures and have taken many pictures of them in the Hawaiian Islands, the western United States and Canada. Roger

Fiji’s Bouma National Park

Had my honeymoon on Taveuni in 1999. My wife and I loved it, all of it: the scuba diving, the people, the Garden Island feel, the short golf course, the hiking, everything, but most of all, we will never forget our hike around Bouma National Park, and the swim into the lower Tavoro falls. It […]

This is one of the most beautiful fossen i Norge. Maybe the most beautiful one. I hope you will be able to come back and to watch it better. Charles

Formofoss, Grong, Norge (Salmon Disease)

Hello, I think the parasite which is very dangerous for the salmons is GYRODACTYLUS SALARIS. If I remember, I will take many pictures of the place and I send them to you, on the summer . Take care all of you and an Happy New Year. Charles

The Yosemite Trance

I visited Yosemite National Park on 5th September 1965! I recall the absolute serenity and the breath taking beauty! The scenic beauty and waterfalls were fantastic and I remember laying myself down on one of the rocks at a distance and watching the the fall of water…It was heavenly and I lay there, for how […]
