I belong to Madurai, Tamil Nadu, South India. We have two falls near to our place, One is Kutlaadampatti Falls within 20-30 km from my house and another one, Kumbakkarai Falls, adjacent to a small town, Periakulam about 60 km from my place, Madurai. At present, I am working in Karaikal, a spot about 300 […]
We used to swim here all the time while living in Hawaii during our teens. Parents were military and it was great fun at the falls. Not far from here, if I remember correctly, was a place called Jackass Ginger which was a place to slide down. I believe it was a half lava tube […]
The locals actually call this fall Horsetail Falls, not sure why. It is indeed seasonal. My partner and I have driven past this fall a number of times, most times there is water going over it but on other occasions there is none. The road coming out of Queenstown, named 99 bends by locals, hides […]
I loved Wailua Falls. We hiked to the bottom and swam in the gigantic pool. We got such beautiful pictures of our family. The hike was not well marked and very steep. We did not take the route that people have died on. The book Kauai Revealed told us of another trail head to take. […]
We found Alapena Falls first. Tons of mosquitos, not a deep enough pool to swim, lots of litter from beer bottles to other trash around the shore. Not a spectacular falls. Then my friends tried to take a shortcut back to the car and found Kapena Falls. Much prettier, still lots of mosquitos, less trash, […]
Hello! I thought you might want to see a couple of my photos of Teinefossen called “Pastel night” and “Teinefossen revisited”. Birkeland is my birthplace and this waterfall is one of the most picturesque places in the area (thus there are plenty of magnificent landscape views).
This is actually VERY easy to do, as the falls are within the ROYAL NATAL NATIONAL PARK, administered by Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife and you can stay in the camp TENDELE in the park. It is possible to hike relatively easily to near the bottom of the falls (from within the park itself) and even to […]
Bring bug spray! Worst place I’ve found for mosquitoes. Easy, short hike, and the waterfalls weren’t bad, but nothing spectacular. We heard hunters shooting close by, so we didn’t stay long.
This was a pretty cool waterfall. We went in early March and there was plenty of water. It’s a somewhat steep hike down a paved path and then a pretty hike along a nice stream. A great half day adventure from LA.
This was a great waterfall. After a fairly lengthy walk through the jungle on a hot day, we couldn’t have asked for more… If anybody visits this waterfall, make sure you ask the locals to take you to the top of the waterfall… but remember, there’s only one way back down… and that’s to jump! […]
Nice, easy, pretty hike to Manoa Falls. Great for taking photos along the way. Falls was roped off due to rockfall danger, but still well worth the hike. Tallest falls I’ve seen on Oahu. The TV series “Lost” has been filmed along this trail. We came across a TV set, but it was being torn […]
Malselvfossen is the most beautiful place on earth. I spent time there with a local expert named Nils Foshaug. His knowledge of the area was excellent, and he made the history of this special part of northern Norway come alive.
I appreciate a broad rather than narrow definition of a waterfall. Bryan and I have been taken to task by several somewhat indignant members of the waterfall community at large for having a broad definition of what defines a waterfall. Indeed, one gentleman rather snidely insinuated that our datum contains “all” waterfalls, including those that […]
Hi, I am from Tamil Nadu, India. I had visited Courtallum Falls in Tirunelveli District, Suruli Falls about 100 Km from Madurai, Tirumurthi Falls at Udumalaipet in Coimbatore District, and Silver Cascade Falls at Kodaikanal. Recently I was reading a serial story in local popular Tamil weekly Megazine ‘Ananda Vikatan’ about a waterfalls known as […]
Hi, I went to Seattle during 2002 along with my wife to visit my son working for Tata Consultancy Services, at Seattle. I was 58 years old during my visit. I had the opportunity to visit the Snoqualmie Falls. I felt very enchanted and happy. After reading this article, I feel like visiting US again […]
There is another way to witness Tarawera Waterfalls. By far the best way is via water taxi across Lake Tarawera. This deposits you at the lakes outflow where a good track broadly follows the river until the river begins to vanish. It is wonderfull geology and delightful native forest. Eventually you descend the cliff face […]
I had alot of fun in Yosemite. I hiked to the top of Nevada and Vernal Falls (just to tell you; I am 10 so it was alot [of hiking] lol). I got soaked on the mist trail because Vernal Falls was raging. While my family was walking up to Nevada Falls, we had a […]
I live in Høylandet and find it interesting that you added Grongstadfossen on your website. I’m sorry that you didn’t know this when you visited the place, but there’s a better lookout place where you can see the whole waterfall from a much closer place. The waterfall was also important during the industrialization because it […]
Not high or forceful, but I like it.
In 1989 I saw beautiful Svöðufoss waterfall and was amazed. I shot a photo and here it is.
