Here is a list of some of the best waterfalls in the world
Angel Falls, Venezuela
From Angel falls in tropical Venezuela to the glacier-fed spectacles of Norway and New Zealand – Here are six of the most awesome waterfalls on the planet:
Iguaza Falls, Argentina/Brazil.
Not only is this the highest waterfall in the world at 979m (3,200ft), but its remote vacation makes it an adventure getting here. Modt visitors take a flight from Caracas to Canaima, the national park surrounding the falls. The location was first spotted by American aviator ‘James Crawford Angel’ – hence the name. Kerepakupay Vena translates as Devil’s Mouth.
The sheer number of waterfalls here is what draws visitors. There are over 270 in total spanning a 2-mile (3.2.km) stretch of the Iguazu River. Most of them are not very deep, typically 64m, (210ft), but the almighty noise and turbulent water are absolutely breathtaking. You can access Iguazu from either country, although most of the falls are in Argentine territory. The best view of all is over Garganta del Diblo (Devil’s Throat), a U-shaped cliff right on the border.
Sutherland Falls, New Zealand.
Purists refer to this as a cascade because it runs down the rocks rather plunging in a sheer curtain, but you can’t deny its drama as it spills down a 6-12 m (2,00.ft) mountain slope into the Akra Fjord below. It never gets over-run with tourists, although there is a visitor area across the road from the Fjord. The best time to visit is summer time when the mountain is lush and green.
Tugla, South Africa.
A stepped waterfall in Fjordland National Park on south Island, Sutherland Falls is famous partly due to its size, but also because it lies of Milford Track, the country’s favourite hiking trail. The falls are fed by glaciers and Lake Quill and then drop in three tiers to the Arthur River. It’s one of a number of waterfalls along the track.
