Water Falls

167 Water FallsOur lives are too intensive and we should always find time and a way to escape everyday chaos. The most sufficient way is to go back to nature where we can find relax and rest, quietness and peace. No matter it is calm or rough sea, snowy mountainous peaks, or waterfalls, they are absolutely the natural wonders on Earth. And, yes, that splitting whisper of the falling water is really soothing and calming. And have you ever asked yourselves which the most beautiful world’s waterfalls are? If you haven’t, just enjoy them and listen to their “murmur” by reading the lines below.

The Smoke that Thunders: Victoria Falls are a gorgeous waterfall in southern Africa, located on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. It is situated on the mighty Zambezi River whose water falls down in a straight line vertically from over 108 metres. The mist generated by the falls could be seen and felt from several kilometers away and that’s why the waterfalls are also known as Mosi-oa-Tunya (or “The Smoke the Thunders”).

The Big Water: Iguazú Falls are a mammoth waterfall on the Iguazú River that separates Argentina and Brazil. They are not very high (only 87 metres) but are really very impressive because, actually, they are a network of 275 various cascades that form a horseshoe spanning over an area of almost 3km.That’s why it’s not surprising that the waterfalls are also nicknamed as “The Big Water”.

Honeymoon Capita: Niagara Falls are most probably the most famous in the world. It is the collective name for three waterfalls on the Niagara River (the Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls) that marks the international border between the United States and Canada. The Niagara Falls are renowned both for their extreme beauty (their vertical drop is of more than 50 metres) and they are a valuable source of hydroelectric power.

Heaven on Earth: Plitvice Waterfalls are a network of 16 karstic lakes that are all interconnected and follow the water flow in the Croatian Plitvice Lakes National Park. They are not very high falls but the cascades are really stunning as well as the colour of water is impressive (it varies from crystal clear to azure, to turquoise).

New Zealand’s Pearl: Sutherland Falls are located in Fiordland in New Zealand and are supposed to be one of the tallest waterfalls in the world, the vertical fall being 580 metres. Water falls in three cascades creating an exceptionally unique and awe-inspiring landscape.

Satisfied with the imaginary waterfall journey? I hope yes. I also believe they are already on your Bucket lists, if you haven’t visited them yet.  🙂
