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.
Werrikimbe is a national park that borders on the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park in N.S.W. but it gets a minimum amount of visitors and it helps if you’ve got a 4WD though it’s not essential. I had visited 20 years previously and been impressed with a short walk I did so I returned to […]
Pronounced “tyre” these falls are but one of a multitude that dispense their waters into the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park and ultimately into the Macleay River that runs through Kempsey. These falls are not anywhere near as popular as the nearby Apsley, nor are they as dramatic. No, these suit the keen bushwalker who […]
It was many years ago when I was first taken to this remote spot. You have to go through private property and then through almost trackless national park to get there. The drop into the Macleay Wild Rivers National Park is impressive. People have abseiled down the side on rare occasions and others have walked […]
Waterfalls weren’t on my agenda this particular day. In fact, the amazing tourist railway at Coromandel was all I was thinking of but, as is my wont, I decided to come home on a different road, albeit an unsealed one. Though the route was the shortest back to our accommodation at Tairua, most people avoid […]
I haven’t been to many falls, but one of my favorites is Multnomah Falls in Oregon. It is on the Columbia River in the Columbia River Gorge area, which is about 40 to 50 minutes east of Portland. There are also several other waterfalls along that area that are very nice to see and hike […]
As by Aug 2008, the trail to the base of Tower Falls hasn’t reopened yet. But it is possible to get there, either by climbing the barrier onto the trail (some people do, despite the signs) or getting down to the creek and hiking upstream. It requires climbing a few large boulders though. On the […]
I love the waterfalls that looks like a bridal veil. Stepping down from Glory, they are so majestic. Also, I love the ones that are wide and and in layers across one another! They are just beautiful. Remind me of Heaven! And I love quiet and wide layered waterfalls! Sincerely yours, Sylvia
We drove past Hydnefosen on 21 July 2007 and there was a lot more water falling. I would like to add that when we saw these falls while driving on the road (Route 52 heading north/northwest), they looked very high compared to the surrounding valley. I remember thinking that this was something out of Lord […]
Hey there! This website is just absolutely great! I love waterfalls and I have learnt much more from this website. Anyway, just come to talk about Hopetoun Falls in the “Otways”. We’ve been there and we all liked it. I didn’t know it was 30 metres high though. That’s pretty high! The walk to the […]
