You can stay in an expensive hotel within the national park on the Brazil side which gives you unlimited access to the falls after the tourist busses stop running. As such, you can get excellent sunrise and sunset photos, something that is not possible on the Argentina side.
Thala waterfall at Bharmour is also one of the most beautiful waterfalls
I’m wondering if creating n artificial waterfall in a pond using a solar-powered pump would have an effect on the temperature of the pond water. On the one hand, I can imagine that the exposure of the individual water droplets to the sunlight might heat them up more than if would if they remained under […]
My wife and I absolutely love this site. We have spent hours reading your itineraries, especially your trips here downunder. We live in Sydney, with our 2 adult children. Our interest in waterfalls began 12 years ago, when we were fortunate enough to have a family holiday to the UK, Norway and Sweden, with our […]
I saw your writeup on Adamsons Falls from a while back, and being quite partial to an adventure myself I decided to go check it out. The track in is still rough, although it didn’t seem too hard to follow for most of it. There had been a lot of rain leading up to the […]
I came out to fish the many small dams and reservoirs around the region and thus left my heavy camera gear at home. I stopped off at Sailors Falls on the way back to Melbourne and was delighted to see them in full flow. I say ‘them’ because there are actually two falls next to […]
I have seen your top 10 list and it is hard to debate the choices. That being said, I would take Wapama Falls over a number of the Yosemite Falls including Bridalveil Falls I would put it near the top of the list. So what does Yosemite Falls (and others) have that Wapama doesn’t have. […]
It is generally accepted as the world’s second-tallest waterfall(though, as per point below, there is an argument that it is actually the tallest waterfall in the world, rather than Venezuela’s Angel Falls). The combined total drop of its five distinct free-leaping falls is 948 m (3,110 ft). At the right time of year, they are […]
We visited Skogafoss this year and made aerial video
The stand of Sequoia trees you referred to is not far away indeed. When returning to the paved road (Mesquito Ridge Rd) just turn left. It will take you toward French Meadow Lake and the park with the Sequoias will be on your right about 15 minutes or so up the road. I believe it’s […]
Does anyone remember this place back in the 80’s just about 100 yards up the road f on the trail leading to the falls, my aunt and uncle use to on it back then I used to be one Of the cooks, my friend Donald was a waiter , we were like 13 years old, […]
Great report but the photograph accompanied by “This was some interesting rock formation near where I suspect the trailhead for the hard hike to Eas a’ Chual Aluinn was” is about a quarter of a mile north of the start of the walk in to Eas a’ Chual Aluinn. We always comment on this feature […]
It was one evening many years ago,I had my Girlfriend at the time, We were there and no one else was there, we could not believe it as it is a very populate place, My Girlfriend was a little bit unsure about going on the Bridge just in case something happened, I told that it […]
I grew up going to Mineral King with a family whose lineage goes back to one of the original miners. They call this waterfall the Three Sisters and I have known it by this name my whole life. Figured I would pass along this information since you didn’t know the name!
Lucifer is possibly my favorite falls. Hiked around falls with my sister (ages 57 and 75). Low-traffic weekday. Beautiful fall day. Down north trail from mill, across bridge and up cliff-face trail (a must – don’t miss catwalk with dedication plaque on way up). A lot of climbing both down and up. Fully-constructed trails, but […]
The moment I had my first glimpse of Havasu Falls, I knew it was somewhere I needed to go. After months of planning, we loaded up our backpacks and made the journey. The trip was worth every single step along the way.
Hey Hikers, Most of the Stoners from Cerritos, CA. used to hike up there back in the late ’70s & early ’80s to party. This was before the Factory came along & messed up the beginning of the Canyon. Back then we used to call it Marijuana Falls because there were stories that it used […]
The Nassfeld Waterfall is high in the mountains of the Hohe Tauern National Park in Austria. Although at an alltitude of 2528m above sea level it is easily accessible as it sits beside the Grssglockner High Alpine Road. This spectacular toll road which is one of the highest in Europe is 48km long and has […]
This is located about an hour 1/2 outside of thunder bay in Dorian
Below, I have listed my original story hiking to White Oak Canyon Falls. I was able to capture the upper and lower falls. All photos were taken by me. Enjoy the read! The views were breath-taking, the air was crisp and clean, the sounds of the birds chirping and the wind blowing was calming and […]
