What comes to your mind when you think about WATERFALLS?

NIAGARA FALLS Height 59 Mtrs

Or if You are an Indian JOG FALLS Height ± 253 Mtrs

But certainly you don¶t think of Victoria, Angel and Iguazu Falls.

So Lets see Why you should Think of These Waterfalls

So what is this? This is the aerial top view of the Victoria Falls

The Victoria Falls has a width of 1.7 km (1 mile) and height of 108 m (360 ft), forming the largest sheet of falling water in the world.

The Victoria Falls are on the Zambezi river. The falls are shared between Zambia and Zimbabwe.

What about this waterfall. How high do you think this fall is ?

The height of this waterfall is 979 Mtrs. Sixteen times higher than Niagara Falls. Three times the height of the Empire state building.


(Angel Falls)

Churun Auyan Tepui 807 172 979 16 1937 Angel ‡ James Crawford 152

Angel Falls
Indigenous name: Kerepakupay Vená Angel Falls is the world's highest free-falling, freshwater waterfall at 979 m (3,212 ft), with an uninterrupted drop of 807 m (2,648 ft), located in the Canaima National Park, Venezuela.

From About 1 Km Below

When there is such cloud cover we can see only about one fourth of the fall.

This next waterfall consists of about 270 falls along 2.7 kilometers of the Iguazu River. Some of the individual falls are up to 82 meters in height, though the majority are about 64 meters.



IGUAZU FALLS Panoramic View

Iguazu Falls are the waterfalls of the Iguazu River located on the border of the Brazilian state of Paraná and the Argentine province of Misiones
