Fjarðarárgljúfur is the name of a canyon in the Southeast of Iceland not far from Kirkjubæjarklaustur. There you can find the beautiful 130-foot Mögáfoss (unofficial name). The canyon itself is worth visiting, having a depth up to 325 feet and is 1¼ miles long. The canyon was created by erosion from the glacier fed river […]
Hestavaðsfoss is the first of many waterfalls on the Skógá River above Skógafoss on the Laugavegur trail. After hiking up the several hundred steps to the top of Skógafoss, proceed another 200 meters to Hestavaðsfoss. The steps are the what makes the hike tiring.
A standout amongst the most effectively open cascades on the Big Island, Rainbow Falls is only a brisk five-minute drive from downtown Hilo. On bright days, rainbows show up in the fog of the 80-foot falls, making for some entirely otherworldly perspectives. Rainbow Falls is a standout amongst Hawaiʻi’s most notorious cascades. The falls is […]
25-foot Wintergreen Falls on Grassy Creek starts as a small ledge-type cascade, then moves into a steeper cascading slide into a shallow pool. The stream makes a 90 degree turn over a smaller slide just downstream of the main waterfall. The falls is named for the wintergreen (or teaberry) plants which grow in the area. […]
This fall, like most others, is best viewed after rain. However, this 40 metre drop expands dramatically from a minor trickle to a full fledged waterfall probably 30 metres across. I can’t emphasise enough just how much better it is when in full flow. The steps down can be slippery and tricky when wet. Caution […]
I might be the first to bring you some sad news by the look of it. Raukawa Falls has undergone a dramatic change sometime between your visit in 2010 and my last visit in October 2018. It looks like a big chunk of the front wall, which is made of a hard sedimentary grey clay […]
I was seconded to work in Otorohanga for a month back in October 1996. On most weekends I came home. I did a lot of exploring in the area after work where I managed to visit Marakopa & Bridal Veil Falls. On one weekend while returning hoe I branched off to visit Waitungaru Falls, which […]
Hello, please use the correct name of this waterfall. It’s Gljúfrabúi. I live in the neighbourhood. You can also try googling the correct name and see all the pages that come up. The name Gljúfurárfoss implies that the river is named Gljúfurá which is incorrect, the river is named Hamragarðaá. Thank you.
Do waterfalls ever develop along fault lines where the earth has shifted vertically?
I’ve been going to Paradise Falls since the mid 80’s. It’s a great waterfall but you definitely don’t want to swim in the pool. Beyond it being illegal, and the Rangers do write tickets occasionally (especially if you are climbing the rocks), much of the water is gutter water. Just not something you want to […]
Remaining at the viewpoint doesn’t do any justice to Noh Kalikai … There are two treks (albeit fairly short) that according to me are absolutely stunning. One takes you to the edge of the falls, while the other to its bottom. The trek to the edge of the falls takes about 2 hrs. The scenery […]
I live in Michigan and love that you came to visit our beautiful state. I’m from lower state and went to college in the UP, in Houghton. With how remote MTU is, a favorite pastime was exploring the natural beauty, including the waterfalls. A few for your next trip should include Jacob’s Ladder in Copper […]
I’m pretty sure you’ve got the wrong waterfall here. This looks like sour milk ghyll. You started off correctly, through the farm, over the river, but then turn left and follow the river southwards. This provides the best view but becomes a serious scramble as you climb up the RIGHT hand side of the fall. […]
Just returned from Niagara Falls last week with my wife. My first time was as a kid in 1955. The writers are quite correct. The Canadian side has great views, lots of places to eat and buy expensive souvenirs, and has a beautiful floral display in the gardens. The real benefit of the American side […]
Hi! Fellow Waterfall stalker here. I go by Trailscout since I started my search of waterfalls way before the internet was born when it required scouting for trails to find ones that no one really knew about. A lot of the information out there has Lion’s Slide Falls (the ones pictured here) as Hatchet Creek […]
We went because we were told it was impressive and not as crowded as the waterfalls over the South Coast. We made the right call by going there. Hot Damn, the waterfall is magnificent to look at and you can feel the sheer power of it, even if the point were you got to see […]
I got the opportunity to visit the falls on both sides. Now that the political situation is ok in Zimbabwe. I’ve seen changes on the Zimbabwe side. Personally I felt the Zimbabwe side is way better. Lots of cafés, shopping… And very great hotels and a bit more developed infrastructure than Zambia. It was more […]
Hi! I am born and raised in Kirkjubæjarklaustur,Iceland. I would like to inform you about the mountain roads in Iceland. All mountain roads in Iceland are closed during the period of thaw in soil. Mountain roads are marked with “F” in front of the road number and means Fjallvegur in Icelandic or Mountain road. Most […]
I can’t argue with Niagara Falls as the top waterfall in State of New York. This is one of the top waterfalls in the world. Your photo was taken from New York, but it shows the Horseshoe Falls which are in Ontario. At night the American Falls are the star because the Horseshoe Falls are […]
