With different elements, intensities and scenarios, each waterfall impresses in a unique way. There are those hidden among forests, or those that fall too hard from cliffs and mountains, others that hold best titles around the world and the little-known falls. Let us see the top 4 waterfalls in the world.
Detian Falls-Ban Gioc, Vietnam and China
Ban Gioc waterfall is on the border between China and Vietnam, in one of the most inspiring natural landscapes in Southeast Asia. Its titles are not limited to beauty. It has points over 70 meters high and extends for 300 meters, making it the fourth widest waterfall in the country. It also draws attention by descending on several staggered levels, all surrounded by limestone rocks covered by native vegetation. It is a must visit place if you plan your next family vacation to Vietnam.
Iguazu Falls, Brazil and Argentina
Iguazu Falls holds a major title for the country, that of the Seven Wonders of Nature. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the main tourist destinations in South America. The reason for all this fame is the result of the combination of hundreds of individual waterfalls that extend for almost three kilometers to create the largest waterfall in the world. The water falling over 70 meters high forms the perfect setting to enjoy the landscapes of the rainforest.
Niagara Falls, United States and Canada
Most iconic waterfalls in North America and perhaps even in the world, Niagara Falls have been the scene of hundreds of movie scenes, collective imagery and destinations for many tourists in the United States and Canada. Three waterfalls form this phenomenon. The most famous formation is the Cave of the Winds, where it is possible to live the experience of passing the Maid of the Mist by boat through the Niagara Gorge.
Victoria Falls, Zambia and Africa
The noise of its waters falling to more than 100 meters in height heard at a distance of 10 kilometers reveals the grandeur of Victoria Fall, located on the Zambezi River, border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, in Africa. The water mist at a height of more than 400 meters can be seen from a distance of almost 20 km away. It is known among the natives as “the smoke that thunders”. Although it cannot claim to be the tallest or the widest, Victoria Falls is still one of the largest waterfalls in the world.
