Thank you so much for your very particular and detailed website, so interesting to explore and to learn about these amazing drops of water! I wanted to suggest you a few italian waterfalls that I noticed you didn’t visit, in the case you’ll be back to the Italian Alps. – Cascata dell’Acquafraggia: north of Como […]
The powerful Stuibenfall can be found in the Tyrol region of Austria near the village of Umhausen. The Horlachbach stream plunges 159 meters into the valley in a cascade of spray which gives the fall its name. We were also lucky to see some beautiful rainbows. There is a car park just outside the village […]
Wife and I are waterfall enthusiasts. Saw great ones in Quebec and Ithaca area this year. Your site is great but it amazes me that you haven’t been to the Poconos in Pennsylvania which has some great waterfalls so close to Patterson NJ. In fact you list no PA waterfalls at all. Check out Bushkill, […]
I realise that you probably do not know Maletsunyane Fall in Lesotho Southern Africa. I am told it has the 2nd longest one drop after Angel Falls in Venezuela.
While it isn’t one of the largest or the most popular waterfalls in the U.S., it does have a certain breathtaking beauty and a famous history. In fact, my family are survivors of this waterfall’s historical 1977 tragedy and my sister was one of its victims. If you ever get the chance to visit Georgia, […]
The original post makes it sound as if you can’t get close to the falls. In fact, just across the parking lot from the cable car in Stechelburg is a Nordic walking trail that leads to the falls. It’s a steep scramble up, and a tough descent, but the brief hike puts you right next […]
Also at Iguazu Falls National Park in Argentina . Starring Robert De Niro and Jeremy Irons .With an amazing soundtrack .Should best be viewed on Blu Ray .
It now seems that to get to the falls you have to use their own transport facilities. Even those with full 4x4s are not permitted to make the journey. This means that anyone wanting to camp up on the site using their own vehicle equipment cannot do so anymore.
Autumn Ridge Road to Whiskey Falls is washed out. You have to reach it from the Mammoth Pool Road or up Beashore Road.
My son and I drove up from Sacramento for a day hike. The drive was a less than an hour and a half, and all but the last little bit is paved. This was Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, so the cul-de-sac mentioned above was filled with cars. We turned down to Millionaire Camp (not […]
I was at the Grand Falls of the Little Colorado in 1984 at a time of heavy water flow. We parked at a small picnic area just down from the Falls and walked up to admire the huge chocolate-like flow over the cliffs. When we got back to the car later we found that the […]
Surely it’s in the Waikato? Taupo is also in the Waikato…. Just FYI….the Bay Of Plenty finishes approx. some 24 kms SOUTH of Rotorua…. And that is where the Waikato starts! and…the Waikato does NOT finish until some 70 kms south into the Desert Road…..that is correct: and that is some 120 kms south of […]
Since I live in the area, I have a bit of additional information. First of all, the road where you park is *a* frontage road (meaning, a road that parallels the freeway), but the actual name is Old Highway 80. It’s called “old” because I-8 was built to replace it. The former Highway 80 lost […]
my wife and I have traveled extensively in the last decade and visited several of the waterfalls you listed – worldwide and USA. Victoria and Iguassu but not Niagara which is ridiculous since we live in Georgia. It is high on the bucket list. Agree with you that the Yosemite Valley is one the most […]
Please advise when the best time of year to visit waterfalls in this part of the country. Thanks.
Actually, the crosses are for the people that have passed diving off of the falls…
I am terrified of waterfalls as much as I am of snakes. I wont go to see them and I don’t like looking at pictures of them. I have tried making myself look at waterfalls to try to overcome the fear, but no joy. I don’t even like to think about them. I can’t stand […]
The track down to the Bottom of the falls is now closed permanently with a sign saying works vehicles only and all hand rails have been removed. But there is a steep bush trail for those willing to take the risk. Cheers Brendan
Havasu is great and photogenic downstream 2 miles is Mooney Falls is nearly twice as tall and even more beautiful. Was there in 1970. The stream braids it way thru many islands making seclusion easy, choose your own. Much more crowded now days, April is the best month to be there.
I visited these falls after filming the floods .the locals said that this is the best they can remember the falls flowing . You are welcome to use any of the video on the site
