Few things in our life impress as much as a strong waterfall that sends millions of gallons of water to the ground to create a natural spectacle. That is why we are looking for the most impressive of the planet to get to know this phenomenon in all its grandeur.
Starting from the most famous waterfalls, near New York and the United States border with Canada, Niagara Falls are the most dynamic water accumulation in North America. Tourists and locals often disagree about which of the two countries has the best view, but the truth is neither. The best view is from the water.
Waterfalls of Victoria
It is one of the most impressive and greatest waterfalls in the world, between Zambia and Zimbabwe in Africa, whose view is awe-inspiring to the visitor, and the nature around it looks like a miracle. They are twice as tall as the Niagara Falls and their water drops at such a momentum that one can feel droplets even 40 km away.
They are located in South America, which counts several impressive waterfalls, namely in Argentina. In fact, they are a combination of 275 separate cascades extending to a width of about 3.5 km and if you ever find yourself there, do not miss the Devil’s Throat where the tension is big enough. Waterfall Kanto Lampo
Kanto Lampo Waterfalls, Indonesia
