Three Gorgeous and Most Beautiful Waterfalls in the World Today
Waterfalls are a beauty to behold. They help purify the air and are perfect when placed in gardens or other outdoor settings. These natural wonders provide an awesome sight, especially in the evening.
There is nothing more romantic than watching the sunset or during sunrise on the waterfalls. From the highest waterfalls in the land to the deepest, most breathtaking, and beautiful waterfalls that are set high into the mountain or set against the spectacular backdrop of thick forest and rainforests.
Switzerland is one of the best destinations when it comes to viewing these natural wonders. The mighty rivers that flow through Switzerland have been formed due to the long-standing geothermal gradient. The water temperature rises and falls at certain intervals.
It is essential for geologists to record these temperature changes so that they can understand the climate of this part of the planet better. There are different factors that contribute to change in water temperature and one of them is the height of the waterfalls.
Kur Unlu Falls
If you want to go to Switzerland, then you will not want to miss the opportunity to view the world’s highest waterfall – Kur Unlu Falls. This waterfall is just about 453 feet high and is located near the town of Zermatt.
It is formed due to the movement of molten rock, which is cooled by the warm water in the streams. People who visit Zermatt can take a hot ride on a cable car to get to this waterfall.
The Niagara Falls
The second highest waterfall is Niagara Falls. This waterfall is around seven miles long. It is located near Newhall, New York, and is open for viewing from early May to late September every year.
One thing that people love about Niagara Falls is the vast array of water slides. It is possible to go on the longest slide in North America by following the path of the steamboat. There are also many other attractions in and around the area, which make it a very popular tourist destination.
Yosemite Falls is a popular tourist attraction. The waterfalls are actually contained within a few artificial lakes which were carved by the American Redwoods. As you go down into the lakes, you will notice that there are bed falls where the water has reached the surface. The highest waterfall of Yosemite is Hetch Hetchy. It is not unusual to see the waterfalls reaching more than a thousand feet.
There are other waterfalls all over the world. Some of them have earned the status of World Heritage sites because of their extraordinary height and natural beauty. Some of the waterfalls that I have personally visited have even reached the altitude that you can view the spectacular sunset. So now you know that you do not need to be an astronaut to visit the top of the waterfalls. All you need is a little bit of extra adventure and courage.
