Julia Pfeiffer Burns SP

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.

Big Sur Visit Last Summer

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.

Most Beautiful Place I’ve Ever Seen

I visited Hawaii an Islands through NCL on the Pride of America Ship (11 Dec.2009 -22 Dec.2009). It was the best vacation I’ve ever done in my life! I departed my home city Amman, Jordan on RJ airlines to Chicago on 30 Nov. 2009 then connected on United airlines to Dallas, Texas where i spent […]

Kulaniapia Falls

Private, Serene, and Magical. Our pick for the most beautiful waterfall on the Big Island.


I realize we’re talking about movies, but there’s a very beautiful waterfall that is shown every now and then on the tv show LOST. The falls is somewhere in Hawaii (they film the show there). I’m not sure what the name of it is though. Chris

Less Than 30 People Have Seen These Falls

Some of the best waterfalls I have seen are in Oregon. But I do like falls in Arkansas. Gloryhole Falls is the best and most unique small waterfall that I have ever seen. Below is a picture of falls in Oregon. We think less than 30 people have ever seen these falls. Our guide discovered […]

Wailua Falls – Saving Other Families from the Heart Ache That her Family Experienced:

My husband and I rented a car and drove to the end of every road we could find on four (4) Hawaiian Islands. We found a wonderful surprise on each path we took! On Kauai, we found the beautiful Wailua Falls. The dangers of actually climbing down the jagged rock face and getting to the […]

Tacoa Falls

Dear Mr Cheng, Thanks for the easy to understand and very well done article on the formation of waterfalls. I teach people how to paint outdoors and waterfalls are my specialty. I take my students to water sites and help them draw and paint directly from nature. When we understand the forces that shape rocks […]

Roaring Billy Waterfall, Haast

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.

Hiker 2020 Cascade Falls, California

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 […]

Over, Around, and Beside Angel Falls

My husband and I visited my parents in Venezuela in 1965. Dad was on loan to a Venezuelan steel company and as he and my step-mother lived in Caracas and the plant was in Puerto Ordaz, they had access to a small plane. I don’t remember the make (think it was a Cessna) but there […]

Waitangi Falls

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 […]

Tugela Falls

What about Tugela Falls in South Africa??? Wasn’t that number 2???

Mino-o (Minoh) Falls, Japan

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 […]

Clueless Tourist – Iguacu Falls

The first time I saw Iquacu Falls was from a small jet in 1985. It was my first trip to South America and shamefully I did not know of the Falls. We were flying over a muddy river for a while and it began to appear like a delta…it was splitting into fingers. Then the […]

Mac Mac Falls Mpumalanga South Africa

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.

Horizontal Waterfalls

I want to know if there is a special name for waterfalls which can go both directions e.g. in a tidal narrows between a lake and the sea, where water builds up in the lake and falls into the sea, then, as the tide turns, the process is reversed. Catriona Malan

More Than Worth The Trip

On our way from USA to Antarctica we purposely made a stop at the Iquazu Falls on the advice of a friend – and it was MORE than worth the trip! We live outside of Buffalo, NY so have been to the Niagara Falls any number of times. I have seen marvelous waterfalls in Iceland, […]


We were there in 1993 and viewed many waterfalls during our trip by car around the Haugesund, Bergen, Voss areas. The year we were there was a particularly heavy rainfall year and the waterfalls were powerful and very wet when we stood at the bottom to view and take pictures. I still get goosebumps when […]
