Niagara Falls, Canada And The U.S.
This is one of the most famous waterfalls in the world, and it marks the border between The U.S. and Canada. Believe it or not, but Niagara Falls stands at more than 167 feet high, has been around for thousands of years, and even provides hydroelectric energy thanks to the amount of water that flows.
Kaieteur Falls, Guyana
Not only does Kaieteur Falls stand at 741 feet high, but it’s also located in the middle of the rainforest meaning that it offers incredible scenery from every angle. The waterfall is so remote that visitors must fly to a local landing strip before hiking to the falls. This means many often have the incredible space to themselves.
Yosemite Falls, The U.S.
Yosemite Falls is made up of three tiers as the water cascades down the cliff. Amazingly, it measures at a whopping 2,425 feet from the top all the way to the bottom. However, the waterfall runs almost completely dry by the height of the summer meaning that the best time to visit is in the spring thanks to the excess water.
Angel Falls, Venezuela
This is the highest waterfall in the world as Angel Falls measures at 3,212 feet. In fact, it’s so high that the water can sometimes evaporate before it hits the bottom. The waterfall earned its name after aviator Jimmie Angel and his wife crashed at the top of the waterfall and had to hike for 12 days to make it out of the jungle.
Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
There is a good reason that Victoria Falls has been named as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. More than 176.6 million cubic feet of water falls over the edge – every second. As if that wasn’t enough, the light from a full moon gives the mist from the waterfall a rainbow glow all night.
It can be breathtaking to see Mother Nature doing her thing. Thankfully, the best waterfalls in the world show us there’s no end to her magic.
