7 Of The Most Inspiring Waterfalls In The World

Waterfalls are some of the most impressive, awe-inspiring natural wonders in the entire world. Beautiful waterfalls can make or break an entire landscape, and most tend to set the entire country apart from the rest of the world. Take, for example, the Angel Falls in Venezuela. The country has become known for those majestic vistas, which feature the largest drop in the entire world. While some are manmade, these are the most inspiring natural waterfalls in the entire world.


7. Huangguoshu Falls
Huangguoshu Falls is China’s most famous waterfall. The cascading water is carefully situated amongst a lot of scenic greens, and has an insane width of 81 meters and a height of 74 meters. It has become the largest waterfall in all of Asia.


6. Angel Falls
Angel Falls, as we previously mentioned, currently holds the record for being the highest waterfall in the entire world. The drop from the top is a record-shattering 979 meters. People love to swim in the small pool near the top of the falls, which can be scary.


5. Gullfoss
Located within Iceland, the Gullfoss waterfalls are simply breathtaking. They drop down into a massive crevice in the Earth, and stand 32 meters high as of right now. The falls are also about 20 meters wide, which may not seem like much, but it is still beautiful and mighty.


4. Shoshone Falls
Shoshone Falls have been called the Niagara to the Western portion of the United States. They have a truly stunning width of 274 meters, and a height of 64 meters, which makes them higher than Niagara by a long shot.


3. Victoria Falls
The Victoria Falls, located in Zimbabwe, are another record-setting set of natural falls that the world has come to know and adore. They currently sit 1,700 meters wide and 104 meters tall, and is the largest running sheet of falling water on the planet.


2. Niagara Falls
Niagara Falls, located on the border between the United States and Canada, are famous for their scenery. The views from both sides of the falls – on either side of the border – are impressive, to say the least.


1. Iguazu Falls
Iguazu Falls is considered the most impressive of all waterfalls, not due to its size, but to how beautiful they appear on a daily basis. These powerful falls, bordering Argentina and Brazil, have become a natural symbol for both countries.
