Most beautiful waterfalls in the world?

You know, the ones that take your breath away? I was recently hiking and came across a little one and it got me thinking-- where are the best in the world to see? If you've been lucky enough to visit them, would love to see your photos.

    I have three favorites:


    1: Niagara Falls is by far the largest, most impressive set of waterfalls that I've ever seen. The view from the Canadian side is better, but I love walking along the green park spaces on the US side. If you take the boat, you'll get drenched.

    2. Though Multnomah Falls is the most famous, I love all of the waterfalls along the old historic highway along the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. It's an easy day trip just to drive from waterfall to waterfall and do quick hikes around the area.

    3. One of my favorite waterfalls ever is a smaller fall I found on accident in Bejís near Camping los Cloticos. There's a place with a spring where people fill water bottles and have picnics. To the right, there's a narrow trail that leads down. You don't see it until you are nearly there and then all of the sudden, the vegetation opens up to this absolutely beautiful waterfall. People swim in the icy water beneath it and climb on the rocks nearby. Some will follow the river down where there are several smaller waterfalls.

    Waimoku Falls in Maui, Hawaii.Waimoku Fallsimage from travelerguidance.blogspot.comThe road to Hana winds up through the rain forest with waterfalls and ocean views around every turn. Waimoku Falls is the "tallest" waterfall, but the entire drive is beautiful. I think the sign at the beginning of the road reads something like "The road to Hana - 6 hours, 42 miles, 19 waterfalls, 50 one lane bridges and some ridiculous number (that I can't remember) of hairpin turns". Completely worth it.

    There is a state park in Oregon, Silver Falls State Park, where you can do a day hike to ten pretty awesome falls within relatively close proximity to each other. At two of the big ones, the trail actually leads you behind the waterfall and the setting is beautifully green all year long. We shared pictures and details on our blog here: http://intentionaltravelers.com/oregons-best-kept-secret-silver-falls-state-park/Silver Falls State Park

    I've been to Iguazú Falls after a good rain (which happens often in the Amazon Rain Forrest). It makes Niagara look like a leaky bathroom sink. Incredibly large, loud & beautiful. Also, the road to Hana on Mauicontains so many small & large waterfalls - the seven sacred pools being the most impressive.

    Judging by the fact that not one person has mentioned this waterfall, I would say that Kaieteur Falls in Guyana is not only one of the most spectacular, but it is the most under the radar. At 741 feet, it is almost five times higher than Niagara. Even better, it is surrounded by the most remote pristine rainforest in the world. Only way to get there is trek 5 days up the river or fly in to a remote air strip cut out in the middle of the jungle.Kaieteur Falls

    Well, Iceland has a pretty incredible selection of waterfalls. One of them, Goðafoss Sightseeing, stars as The Wall in A Game of Thrones on HBO when it freezes for winter. (I have a blog post that mentions it here.)

    I also like the La Paz Waterfall Gardens in Costa Rica.

    Several of my suggestions have already been mentioned, Niagara Falls, which, like many natural wonders America shares with Canada, looks better on the Canadian side. Kaua'i has several very amazing waterfalls, including the one shown in the opening of the original Jurassic Park movie. The "road to hana" in Maui is a twisting, turning highway that takes you past a bunch of waterfalls. In addition, I agree with the falls in Yosemite Valley - Yosemite falls, Bridal Veil falls, etc.

    Check out Trafalgar Falls at Morne Trois Pitons National Park on the island of Dominica in the Caribbean. It's a great place to swim and sit in the hot pools at the base of the twin falls. Cool place!

    Also try Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia for beautiful waterfalls.

    I too would love to form a big trip taking in all the amazing waterfalls, but I'll settle for lots of little trips.

    The sound of Niagara Falls never leaves you. Close your eyes when you're there and nature really does wow you. Cheesy but true.
