Swimming Hole (White River Falls)

My cousins and I lived on State Hwy. 216, just a mile or so east of the park entrance in 1978 and 1979. We frequently went to the falls during the hot summer months for refreshing swims. I also fished the White River downstream from the falls, landing some nice trout. I haven’t been back […]

Seen A Lot Of Them

I became very interested in waterfalls at the tender age of 11 when I crossed Victoria Falls for the first of 39 times. Have even walked along the rim during the dry before it became a fashionable tourist attraction. Like you I have assembled a huge database (2250) of falls around the world and have […]

Waterfalls And Their Qualities

What are the erosional qualities of waterfalls?

Sylvia Falls

First of all, thank you very much for this great site! Part of the Wentworth Falls – at the very end of the round track. I would say this waterfall is about 15m tall

Cumberland Falls

I have only seen a couple of great falls, of course the other great falls I have seen was Niagara. I have also seen many beautiful small falls; Clifty Creek in Indiana was very pretty.

Haloku Sea Cliffs and Waterfalls, Moloka’i, Hawai’i

Haloku are often called the World’s tallest sea cliffs. They rise 3,250 feet, a full kilometer. I ran 78 commercial trips down Koolau Moloka’i in the 1980’s but since it was summer (the only time safe to kayak) we never saw Haloku pumping. On my Hurricane John honeymoon trip in August 1995 we did see […]

Hjalparfoss is great – don’t miss it

I visited Hjalparfoss with a British group in 2008. We had been to many of the famous large falls and Gullfoss is still top of the list for sheer overpowering grandeur. BUT Hjalparfoss is so beautiful and peaceful. We just sat on the grassy slope, ate our sandwiches and soaked it up. It’s wonderful, And […]

What causes a waterfall to change shape or form on the way down?

At a Holiday Inn in Tucson they have a waterfall in the lobby that pours over a flat ledge, about ten or twelve feet wide) and the water falls in a flat smooth sheet. Half way to the bottom, it suddenly starts fluttering back and forth (towards the front of the falls, and also to […]

Units – use and translation

I value the nature a lot and I appreciate the page like yours. I saw few of the waterfalls from your list – they are beautiful without the doubt. My only concern is about the units you are using. Since the readers have various understanding of units – both, in US and rest of the […]

Iguazu Falls – Fee to Cross from Argentina to Brazil

It should be noted that there is a $100 fee to cross from Argentina to Brazil. If you hire a taxi and guide in Puerto Iguacu he might be able to get you over without this payment. Both sides are different and are worth seeing.

Kahiwa Falls

Kahiwa Falls, Hawai’i’s tallest consistent waterfall during the Hurricane John trip. Amporn is wearing a shirt for wind protection. Excuse the quality – this shot is from a 1995 slide.

Papalaua Falls

I am extremely familiar with Papalaua Falls. I used to run kayak trips down Koolau, Moloka’i and will again someday. I also made two documentaries including the falls. “Moloka’i’s Forgotten Frontier” won a 1985 Emmy Award and the US Outdoor Writers Council “Teddy” for Best Environmental Education production of the year. “Moloka’i’i, Child of the […]

Shikishima Waterfall (Shikishima-no-taki)

You saw MUCH more water here than I did. Hagoromo is easily the Japanese waterfall I was most curious about prior to my visit to Japan. For what it’s worth, I also found the trail to Shikishima-no-taki closed, but Yusemi, the wonderful man who showed us around merely shrugged and motioned us to come along. […]

Dagg’s is my brother in law!!!

How nice to be in a very green and clean countryside… I love the falls… Dagg, Brown and Queen Mary’s Falls. I have been there 3x and I took so many pictures. You can revitalise your spirit and to be in touch with nature… it can take your stress away. I just couldn’t imagine that […]

Memorable visit to Queensland (Killarney)

I’ve been in Queensland last December 2008-March 2009. I visited my sisters in Killarney and my brother in law is a Dagg… I was fascinated to see all the pictures specially the fall in Killarney… these are the places I’ve been visited and took a lot of photos and memorable memories with my family. The […]

Hiking to the falls

Breathtaking. Indescribable. If you can handle an 8 mile hike over mud, rocks, and steep terrain, this is a must-do while in Kauai. The pool below feels really cold, but jump in. It is incredibly invigorating. This was the best thing I did in my two weeks in both Kauai and Oahu. I loved it.

Correction on Tokopah Falls

The article about Tokopah Falls is incorrect. Tokopah is not on the Middle Fork of the Kaweah River as stated in the article. Instead, Tokopah Falls is on the Marble Fork of the Kaweah River. The article needs to be corrected.

Wonderful World

Excellent writing regarding waterfalls and relationship. I enjoyed the many times that we were together searching for waterfalls and natural bridges. The song “What a Wonderful World” says it all.

Terraced Falls Hike

So I was looking around and found your site (really like it). Recently I went on a trip to Yellowstone with a friend and our main goal was to check out waterfalls. We saw many pull-over falls, Union Falls and Terraced Falls. The hike to Terraced Falls was pretty intense. We got about 1/2 way […]
